  • Last Updated : 15 Oct, 2020

Suppose we have 5 elements in a row and the task to put a bigger element in the middle of a row. How to make a DIV span the 2 rows of the grid with the help of CSS.

Approach 1: First get the height of the outer DIV of ID(‘outer’). We know the height of the outer element now design can be achieved using CSS Flexbox with flex-direction: column and flex-wrap: wrap. fixed height on the container tells the flex items where to wrap.

Example:




<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
  
<head>
    <style>
        #outer {
            display: flex;
            flex-direction: column;
            flex-wrap: wrap;
            height: 120px;
            width: 516px;
        }
  
        .div {
            width: 90px;
            flex: 0 0 50px;
            margin: 5px;
            background-color: green;
        }
  
        .big {
            flex-basis: 110px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body style="text-align:center;">
    <h1 style="color:green;">
