Ellebo Garden Room

 

Short description:

The landscape of the estate is transformed into a lively, productive, ecologically-rich shared garden. Comprising a loose ensemble of garden rooms, this allows for diversity of use and habitat. Offering a diverse range of spaces of different character caters for the many different needs of a community and promotes the sense of sharing and pleasures of coexistence.

 

The proposed strategy for renovation of the structures is a careful combination of maximal retention of the existing structure, substantial new build, complete renovation of the facades and substantial landscape renovation. These are woven together to optimise the efficiency and social effectiveness of the whole project. The rooftop apartments create a new roofscape, while adding high quality apartments - without creating excessive height or shadow.
