Urban Setting

Volumetric surroundings of the site are uniquely delicate, small, detailed and fractured – and at the same time dominated by few vertical elements. We wanted to respect the small volumetric scale, existing or potential public paths and green areas. Thus creating a small “village” that happens in two levels; creating new accessible public spaces that can provide activities from morning to evening in various temperatures. We wanted to create spaces for spontaneous social contact and fluent life.
