The residential building, a simple, oblong structure, is set at a right angle to the street. Five further, low structures for community facilities are set between the existing buildings, organising the open spaces into smaller, well-scaled places, and enhancing the entire neighbourhood. This project was selected above all for its conceptual approach. The design shows how wood construction can contribute to enhancing the existing urban fabric if it is embedded delicately, as in this project.
