living in nature
Hestra Parkstad goes beyond the matter of aesthetics but also aims the objective of living in nature.
The site is a beautiful rocky landscape with large trees as oak and ash. An expression we wanted to see everywhere and bring into the houses.
We preserve the landscape and strengthen it by architecture. Roads and paths winds through the landscape. Houses takes hold of the peak emphasizing the characteristic topography.
