Texts from the architect:

The location is on the edge of the planned 650 apartments which was finished year ago.
Also this apartment block is social type and was sold to Slovenian Housing fund.

The cost per square meter had to be 650 EUR/m2 since the selling cost was 1200EUR/m2. The given urban plot of the apartments was 4 floors high, 58 meters long and 15 in width.
Since the orientation of the building is towards the busy highway the apartment opening together with balconies are shifted as 30 degrees window-wings towards the quieter and south orientated side.
Long after the elevations were planned many people associated them to Tetris game. And so the building got its name.

Sustainability issues:

1.The combination of balconies and winter gardens function as constant temperature buffer zone to the main living and sleeping areas.
The balconies are shifted opposite from the busy road. On the same time provide shelter from direct sunlight direction to the apartments.
Additional aluminum shading panels are placed on the outer sides of the winter loggias and balconies.

2. The service and communication spaces are reduced to minimum thus the daylight is provided on the shafts. The monthly basic energetic and service costs are very low; so also economic for the habitants since the apartments are social type.
