"‘Bio-based Idiolect’ finds the retro feeling of the neighbourhood worth preserving and restoring. The vision recognizes the importance of the coexistence of old & new as a central point. After all, the existing volumes were prototypes themselves decades ago. The proposal makes a fundamental choice to place any modern intervention in the inner side of the blocks thus not directly visible from the street. All the contemporary extensions facing the green will have a modern feel."
