Proximity to nature and a strong sense of community were the two main goals for the project.
The circular shape creates a clear distinction between the inner common spaces and the surrounding natural landscape. Here you get to live with nature right outside your window, and a strong and welcoming community when you exit your home. The circular shape ensures that every single inhabitant can look right into the forest bed from their home.
The new housing capsules the existing building, making it the community heart of the neighbourhood. The common spaces invite the inhabitants to interact with one another, and within the inner space is a variety of versatile common spaces and a diverse set of functions as workshops, gym, library, allotment gardens, and sauna facilities. The housing block offers a diverse housing mix. Together with the unique setting and many facetted common spaces, we aim to attract residents of all ages where the different generations are mixed.
