This residential development has been designed in a linear North-South orientation with buildings aligned along two-street design rather than large central open space. The design tested the scale to help in creating shaded spaces, thus generating a conducive microclimate which renders the spaces more usable for a greater part of the year. Variation in height is specifically designed to allow for good daylight at the ground level and lessens the sense of density that comes with high-rise structures in close proximity. The varying height profiles allow for enhanced cross ventilation and better daylighting. The elevated terrace gardens created form an ideal safe space for the very young and the very old. The basements are efficient due to the linear design pattern and with optimized parking grids on site. The design enables cost reductions through efficiencies, allowing greater funds to be allocated to other areas like surface treatments, landscape, etc.
