The Urban Hybrid | The exterior of the block is a varied urban street front whilst the interior offers the quality of a green and intimate village. The interior of the block is divided into both private and public spaces, with dividing walls used to hang tables or benches and parts of the walls which can be used for table tennis.
A cohesive landscaping plan foresees a wide variety of fruit trees in the courtyard, in both the private and public areas. The landscaping will attempt to blur the lines between the interior and exterior of the block into a widely applied park-like format. Parking for the block is underground to create a car-free interior, and the roofs of the buildings will be used for additional outdoor space. Each house or apartment will have its own façade colour, emphasising its individual ownership and individual floor plans defined by the residents.
