Inner-roof can be the space to stay, to enjoy the sunshine, to meet

The entry is a brilliant vision of how to reuse the old building stock and use it as a platform for community housing. The entry is original and its presentation is of a high quality. It vividly shows how an old industrial building can be converted into an intimate and vibrant village that harks back to the early days of urban construction. Under a wide glass roof there is an eco-village, a living organism that adapts to its users. The entry also presents a convincing technical description of how this complex would operate.
