The Tartu Rebase Street project tries to combine the best of two worlds when it comes to residential structures. It essentially brings together the benefits of both a house and an apartment into one convenient package.

Designed by Atelier Thomas Pucher, the Tartu Rebase Street project addresses the need for condensed, economic homes while acknowledging the desire for the privacy, space and outdoor gardens that individual houses provide. By taking on a stacked villa form, it offers all those things while keeping the building and maintenance costs low.

Located in Tartu, Estonia, the Tartu Rebase Street project actually features two different types of buildings: River Towers and City Slabs. The River Towers design addresses functional elements while the City Slabs design embraces a more urban context.
