The building’s main facade is oriented southwest to ensure the best possible use of passive solar heating. By placing the buildings across the lie of the land, recreational areas appear between the houses where the terrain, rainwater gutters and swamp beds use natural inclination to divert rain water away from buildings and into the water basin, to support the social, technical, environmental and economic sustainability.

The building is like a patchwork quilt over the land, and varies by changes in altitude, outward perspectives, smaller nooks, differences in scale, planting areas and recreational spaces. The project’s various squares and roads can be used in a multi-functional way, for sport, playing and parking, to support the social and process sustainability.

The neighborhood is built with classic, well-known and long lasting materials. The idea is for the materials to age over the years, such as the planting areas between the houses which become more established and more appealing through time. This evolution is similar to the small neighborhoods we know from historical Danish towns … lifetime proved sustainable environments.
