The project reflects the situation of affordable housing in Prague, Czech Republic, showing selected examples of municipal and cooperative houses from the interwar period. The idea represents documentation and revision of their typology, especially the role of common exterior spaces like courtyards or front gardens and their contemporary (non-) use. Based on the current situation, selected spaces will be revived with various activities with the residents.
