Building volume and scale in this competition entry is mitigated between detached houses and the city centre blocks. Adjusting to topography and existing grid of roads we proposed a new area with a walking street in the middle and accentate by periscope-like 16-storey towers. Proposal created a good amount of new housing while preserving the most valuable existing buildings and the character of hilly forest town.
