The Mountain Dwellings is the 2nd generation of the VM houses - the older brother next-door, also by PLOT (now JDS architects and BIG). Same client, same size and same street. The program however is 2/3 parking and 1/3 living. The two functions are merged into a symbiotic relationship. The housing is orientated to the sunlight, fresh air and view. The parking has become the foundation of the housing. Together they are combined into a artificial hillside, complete with sun-facing roof gardens and parking on the 10th floor. The completion is planned in May 2008.
