When discussing human development, the campfire played a significant role. Through stories, knowledge, understanding, and hope were disseminated. Around the campfire, people felt secure, which made them receptive to new ideas. This is something that ELAK places great importance on today when we create homes for a larger group of people. Safety and openness to both loved ones and strangers are elements that need to be incorporated when building new residential areas or implementing new apartment buildings alongside existing homes.
When planning homes, it's crucial to make room for everyday activities. By filtering these activities between the private and public spaces, we can create space for meaningful moments for ourselves and with others.
By understanding our behaviors, habits, the place we are in, and the environment that surrounds us, ELAK's goal is to create apartment buildings, environments, and zones where both loved ones and strangers can feel a sense of belonging to each other, be open to new ideas, and take an interest in each other's well-being. By creating shared spaces where we can grow together, we become stronger than our individual parts.
