A stepped roofscape offers generous private terraces and slopes down to meet the central park that resembles the natural setting of an alpine valley.
The central valley offers a shared park and garden with recreational landscape features such as a lake, trees, grasslands with integrated sports facilities and play areas. Essentially a large courtyard park surrounded by a variety of housing typologies with a clear identity and living environment based on life quality and everyday experiences and encounters with fellow neighbors in the central shared parkscape that support and enhance the qualities of the new district.
