The block is organized around a large, green park and offers different types of housing units – from smaller spaces for students to large apartments for big families with children. All were created to foster a socially sustainable context across multiple generations. Rental units, tenant-ownership units and rowed townhouses create a diverse ambience that blends perfectly into the natural surroundings.

Most buildings are clad in natural materials such as timber and are planned to generate more energy than they use. The local school features a lush roof garden but students also have access to the adjacent park. The entire neighborhood is a “space for play and community, characterized by greenery, nature and diversity.”
