How to live on a small plot and enjoy an impressive, unobscured view in a densely populated countryside? How to pay less and use more of the land? How to protect your individual life and still live in a community of like-minded people?

SVESMI masterplan for the village of Kotovo in Moscow region, a winner in the nomination “Innovative development product” of the real estate competition “Good Innovation”, proposes the configuration of small plots composed along the site perimetres and opening into collective yards. This spatial organisation allows for the maximum of individual privacy and also for collective programming of the yards by the inhabitants.
