Best Project of Residential Estate

About the project
Amsterdam architecture practice GG-loop designed Mitosis, a modular building system for regenerative, environmentally conscious living and collective residential/mixed-use development. Designed with biophilic principles and parametric design tools, the prefab timber modules would be optimized for flexibility and scalability to allow for construction in a variety of conditions. Options range from off-grid, single-family homes to high-density, mixed-use zones.
Named after the biological process of a single cell dividing itself into two identical daughter cells, the Mitosis project was designed to mimic a flexible organism that evolves to adapt to different settings. The scalable buildings would be made up of individual, rhomboid-shaped modules stacked together to create shared outdoor spaces and private terraces. These outdoor areas would be generously planted with greenery to reconnect residents with nature.
