According to the development provisions, a perimeter development with a small, inner courtyard – adding no quality – is called for. A far better solution was to set the buildings back on both sides, resulting in "outer courtyards" behind the railings of reinforced concrete in the front. This allowed for private open space between the railing and the building's facade. The balconies extend along the entire length of the apartments, giving residents access to the outdoors from their sitting rooms and bedrooms.
