Dorniksquare and Park Villa

By organizing the new housing in a more compact way, our proposal creates room for new public space. Instead of the proposed row houses of the master plan, we suggest to apply the ‘grain’ of the Dornik area for the new development, a mix of semi-detached houses and compact blocks of three units each. At the park the new apartment building frames the park and, at the Dornik side, presents itself as a light and compact housing volume. The park villa is positioned as one permeable building floating above the green central public space.
