DELVA Landscape Architects created a community oasis for the city of Utrecht

designed a shared green oasis for the city of Utrecht surrounded by rows of homes with traditional brick architecture. Their proposal for the area, entitled "The Share-Garden", combines private and public spaces, and will include a plan that will make use of the diverse qualities of the surrounding area. The project's credo, "unity in diversity" is embodied in the treatment of the brick facades, each of which will be unique, and each home will have its own garden, green terrace and green walls, while being unified by the shared green spaces.
