The ultimate form of private housing – to be away from the city, to be close to nature – is perhaps like a clearing in the middle of a forest.
To achieve this sense of privacy and isolation, we imagine the site first as a forest, from which clearings are made for individual villas.
The use of hedges as an architectural feature on a large scale is to enable a visible and coherent overall form.
The courtyard form is chosen as the common housing typology.
This type is further transformed into a spiralling form with fingers radiating from its circumference.
