LIVING IN A PARK

Situated at the edge of the city center was a vacant piece of land, formerly occupied by a school. Featuring a wonderful structure of large trees, the area grew popular as an informal park since the school was abandoned. This brought us to the idea to develop the area as a park with dwellings. By concentrating the required 240 dwellings on six carefully designed platforms, the existing tree structures could be saved and the area designed as a park. We acted as an urban planner, landscape architect and architect for one of the platforms.
