The concept proposes three enclosed islands starting from layout of typical house with garden in the area. Apartment village is formed from individual houses with gardens and furthermore imposed on top of each other. In this way, green parterre is elevated on the upper floors.

The islands are hexagonal shape, therefore there is no guidance, but floating in space. Housing units are arranged in 4 floors with inserted apartment volumes in between slabs. The arrangement creates terraces between volumes and possibility for apartments to be opened on three or four sides.

Construction is scheduled to begin in fall 2010.
