The project is based on the premise of understanding public space as a powerful tool. In this project it is a priority to think and design the public space as the best contribute towards a better use of the site - adapting the topography and establishing dynamic and user friendly connections to other parts of the suburb.

The housing typologies proposed, have a clear intention of liberating as much ground area as possible and to provide a low density construction that relates to a more natural environment as a continuum of the main Green Park.

The polarization of services and commerce settled allows the pedestrian crossings to animate the Urbreen Platforms day and night, making it a secure and pleasant place to live in.
