FOREST PENETRATES THE CITY
This housing development takes place in a town extension of the 1930’s. Also here a school was abandoned due to demographic changes, leaving yet another vacant lot of land, with beautiful pine trees.
Development costs required a minimum of 25 dwellings which couldn’t be realized using a conventional type of urban planning.
The answer was found just hundred meters away, in a pine forest spotted with little hills, moreaines left behind of one the ice ages.
By applying this structure onto the site height differences were introduced that enabled ground-floor access to all dwellings even while some of them were stacked, resulting in an economic yet very green housing development.
