VMX designed strips of terraced houses linked in a meandering line and combined with a narrow volume – ten storeys high – on a pedestal of shops with a parking deck on top. This design combines car-parking at ground level, under the terraced houses, with high-quality exterior space for everyone. In addition the meandering shape ensures an interlocking with the park. In its materialization the design harmonizes with the surrounding architecture but simultaneously radiated a certain wealth and optimism, using green and orange coloured glass, carved stone and perforated aluminium.
