But not every project can have a commercial element, if that's what you mean by interaction (I guess you mean some better relationship with the public realm - some way of looking in - glass, i guess I mean!). But this development is a residential block in a city centre location, but it's by no means a retail or commercial environment. I owuld suggest that in such a marginal location (which backs onto a cemetary!), security considerations would suggest that you might not want too much public interaction!
As it is, it faces directly onto the street with really interesting upper floors with the variation of the timbered "shutters" (are they shutters?) providing monitoring of the public realm from within. And it has precisely as much interaction as the neighbouring historic building - i.e. ground floor windows. That's all my house has too!
