FAR ROC
Long Island  (New York)

The implementation of a new urban model n the Rockaway Peninsula, in Long Island, represents a great opportunity to think about the typological models appropriate to combine urban life styles, suburban structures and high ecologic-value (and sometimes even aggressive) natural contexts. This new models should answer with simplicity and straightforwardness to this levels of complexity, assuring this way the needed continuity in terms of domestic local perception. Our proposal for Far Roc Masterplan is based on two complementary design strategies:

 

01. A plan organization in two different areas: a mid-density urban residential area and a nature preserved area.

 

02. A multi-layer lay out of the different activity levels: the original ground level, the slightly modified topography, the urban level, the community level and the housing upper levels.
