3 Islands- elevated terraced villas
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.
The height of the islands lowers towards the south creating terraces and therefore offers light, views and sun to the living units.
Green area around buildings is formed with small hill-islands with threes and greenery.

Apartments-levelled houses
Since apartments have external entrances and are oriented on three or four sides they actually work like one family house with attached garden, lifted on different levels. Each family house unit has cross ventilated airy space and sun exposure.
Materials are wood, glass and concrete. Extensive green will be pre-planted on terrace edges.
