’ housing complex design considers the existing large building and the surrounding single family housing structure by preserving the scale and the views of the landscape. The buildings are oriented east-west and each apartment is designed with terraces or loggias. The concept follows the idea of landscape-folding.

HOLODECK architects’ task is to design apartments for different user necessities encompassing the constraints of the given site, located between a “single family housing structure” and a “green belt”. HOLODECK architects’ main concern is to avoid traffic noise pollution from the nearby highway and the east-west orientation of the building. Conceptually, HOLODECK architects fold the landscape as a plane around the user defined volumes creating the main structures. Above the parking garage the new ground level is turned into public green with a children’s playground.
