Situated near the Baltic Sea in the midst of native woodland, the design for this residential complex preserves as much as possible of the existing landscape. A compound of sixteen private multi-storey villas are woven between the trees of the woodland so that they relate closely to their beautiful environment.

 

Each apartment features a balcony that connects all the rooms along one fa├žade and provides its own view of the woodland. Like a treehouse, the construction is inserted into the fabric of the woodland and built around existing trees, offering its residents an intimate and direct experience of its surroundings.
