The new urban district of Les Vernets has a metropolitan dimension, which will decisively shape future developments in the area. The new residential and office buildings set the framework and create a clearly defined street space with square-like extensions at regular intervals that mark the entrances to the public city park. Inside the square, a world of its own opens up: a green, tree-lined courtyard of park-like dimensions. Its dimensions alone give it urban relevance. At its core, it is a public space that can be traversed from the outside, with an open, shuffling centre and a pavilion. The individual floor plans of the apartments depend on the building depths of the individual building sites. All floor plans have the quality in common that they are oriented towards both the street and the green interior of the area.
