The outstanding quality of this extraordinary urban location in close proximity to the forest calls for a lush green setting with freely positioned, organic and refined housing units oriented in many different ways within the environment. The existing characteristics (forest, neighbouring gardens, peace and quiet) form a typological base: large polygonal loggias are the private outdoor spaces and, at the same time, the centre of the residential units.
