In collaboration with de Architecten Cie, Temp Architecture Urbanism and Flux Landscape Architects, Raumplan is working on the design of the most 'nature inclusive' residential plan in The Netherlands. Within its two plots and eight building blocks, the projects is home to 223 private, rental and social housing units. On ground level, an array of social and commercial functions will be realised. In order to achieve its environmental ambitions, the design team proposed two massive roof gardens, both on a one meter layer of top soil. This radical gesture enables a wide variety of critters and vegetation, with each species of plant carefully selected to suit specific conditions of light and shadow, desired speed of growth and even edibility.
"The plan's gardens relate to the city on various scales."
