Sustainability

The existing creek landscape is extended into the new neighborhood and the green-blue framework maximizes views on the landscape throughout the neighborhood. Existing height differences in the new park areas are used for rainwater retention, nature playgrounds, native vegetation and continuous views and vistas on the surrounding landscape.
