On one wall of the subsidised housing development, called Boréal, an exterior wooden structure acts as a footbridge and passageway to the homes. On the opposite side, greenhouses enable inhabitants to grow their own produce.

The homes are a good example of housing that our Rurbanites tribe might choose to live in.

With their innovative approach to renovating an old site, the architects have also shown elements of our Anarconomy Decade trend.
