description: This is a medium density housing scheme exploiting the opportunties arsiing from a very deep site. The project is also situated on a floodplain that will be exposed to periodical flooding which enabled the creation of a continous elevated artifical landscape of terraces to be created on the upper levels. The project is exploiting the new structural opportunties made possible by cross laminated timber construction achieving a very low carbon footprint.
