Description

The urban plan comprises six clusters with a communal garden and a public route through  an inner courtyard. The blocks are open at several points to allow the informal public route through green areas. The block is defined by terraced housing  with private gardens facing the public areas and by some maisonettes, housing for the  elderly  and studios. The typologies are not further developed.

Jury assessment

The public space is attractive, the blocks have a clear identity, with a pronounced distinction between the space inside and outside the blocks. The architectural elaboration is unsatisfactory.
