Instead of living in uniform platteubaus in Moscow, the new middle class start seeking diverse and unique yet reasonable housing. The housing block consists of the sum of singular houses. The pentagonal profile of each unit emphasizes the singularity and the independency yet the orthogonal outline kept as a whole. By having a spectrum of the choice for the unit types and the exterior cladding materials, the residents can customize their own houses as supposed to do for single houses. It aims to make an interdependent relationship between each unit and the overall block, as it can be interpreted as accumulated houses or an eroded housing block verse versa
