This project consists of a good 300 metre long, gently curving 'residential wall' in six storeys, with behind it some less-high housing slabs, gardens, and two roofed parking lots. The uppermost two storeys of the 'wall' cantilever and are reached from a central corridor. The lowest two are of a pale yellow stone; the white synthetic panels of the upper storeys have been accentuated in colour by K. Froger wherever there are gateways in the wall.
