The development site is characterised by its city-edge location; to the east lies the existing four-storey suburban Orasteig development and to the west lie the first green agricultural fields. In this delicate location, it is particularly important that the proposed residential neighbourhood assumes a sensitive scale.
The urban grain of the proposed development is broken down to form smaller neighbourhoods, each with their own character and identity; these in turn are connected through pedestrian routes and vistas to the surrounding countryside landscape.
Easily identified entrance points include generous pushchair/stroller storerooms. The easy-to-find entrances benefit from generous pushchair/stroller rooms on the ground floor. Each building is given its own identity through coloured cladding for windows and dormers, allowing the residents to easily navigate their way around the development.
