The new urban district of Les Vernets is designed with a carefully constructed urban fabric that lends itself to a more cosmopolitan dimension, decisively shaping this district for future developments. New residential and office buildings set the framework for the space and create a clearly defined streetscape. Within this framework, park extensions at regular intervals break the linearity of the built form and demarcate entrances to the public city park.


Within the main square, a world of its own opens up: a green, tree-lined courtyard of central park-like grandeur. Its dimensions alone give it urban relevance. At its core, it is a public space that can be permeates from the outside, with a vast open centre. Each apartment floor plan depends on the building depths and typology of the individual building sites. All floor plans share the desirable quality of being oriented both towards the street and interior green courtyard of the area.
