The triangular plot called for two building types: a first set extending along Boulevard Pierre Frieden, and another set consisting of three five-storey blocks sitting along the shorter sides. In response to the site’s slope toward the street, the lower levels were divided into dual-aspect units, with access to a garden on the ground floor and garden levels, while the upper floors house large flats. The project developed distinct relationships to the street, showing a smooth and introverted façade, and to the core of the programme, where large South-facing balconies overlook the gardens. In the centre, each floor level of the smaller buildings house only two units, offering housing conditions similar to those of individual housing. The site’s interior landscape provides smooth transitions into the public space and offers a range of installations (pergolas, vegetable gardens) for the residents.
