Presenting the permeable mid-rise typology as as a sustainable alternative to the high-rise tower; an ideal for dense urban living, considering future sea level rise.
The typology has many social benefits including reduced social isolation by extending public social spaces vertically and reduced crime via natural surveillance.
The permeability better integrates the public realm and allows ventilation across the site.
When the land floods social life can migrate upwards. Fully connected by sky bridges with all necessary amenities the development is sustainable and independent.
