From the authors:

  • situated on a complex location in between highways and a high voltage network
  • the specific conditions of the location demanded a non-typical solution
  • the new concept was developed with housing without private gardens, but all situated in a common park
  • instead of a garden, each house has a roof terrace with a private outdoor space
  • all housing blocks are built on a parking lot and excess soil from previous developments were used to create a sloping landscape around the blocks, thus hiding the parking lots out of sight
  • the surrounding park was designed as a community space with playgrounds for children, flower gardens for elderly people and a spectacular canyon for water storage
