FOREST PENETRATES THE CITY

 This housing development takes place in a town extension of the 1930s. 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 a hundred meters away, in a pine forest spotted with little hills, moraines 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.
