Inspiration

This peculiar natural valley arrived with an opportunity; what if we could use the slopes to draw attention to what matters most? Following our design-thinking
approach, we came up with the concept of a modern valley; containing in its folds the busy on goings of city life.

Implementation

Access represented a triumph of urban landscaping in the face of natural environmental challenges; the slopes were improved with leveled steps for wider visibility, the living space was fully utilized with one-bedroom apartments, and each cluster was designed for self-sufficiency, allowing people to socialize, cycle around the area or grab a coffee without straying too far from their homes on the valley banks.
