HOLODECK architects’ 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.
