The urban plan designed by KCAP for Europaallée Quartier, into which this mixed use building by Caruso St John and Bosshard Vaquer is inserted, is made up of closed blocks which paradoxically allow for a large degree of permeability due to the public space running through all the buildings and the formalization of the elements incorporated. The voids and setbacks preserve views of the city despite the massiveness of the volumes. Heights are balanced by combining two typologies.
