    The fundamental premise of the project was to alter the natural terrain as little as possible. Because of that we propose: A platform on which four of the five buildings are located. The sports contents, dwellings and commercial premises alternate on the ground floor. In front of them there is a widened sidewalk and a boulevard of trees. The orientation of the buildings depends of the Sun, the forest and the mountains, as well as the position of other buildings. The paths for pedestrians and bicycles are laid diagonally, so to be integrated into the natural terrain. The rational and simple planning and organization, along with adapting to the natural terrain and using ecological materials in the building design were key parts of the project. In that manner, we used prefabricated elements, what also saved the time and the budget during the execution.
