LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Residential density for urban spaces

Increasing residential density can limit sprawl and foster sustainable urban transformation. One instrument of change is building in between existing structures on “leftover” space. For each type of site, Residential density for urban spaces develops a new type of house.

At times eccentric, these designs perfectly utilize small gaps in the urban fabric, and create a new overall aesthetic.
