Bjarke Ingels’ Group plans to build a mountain-like block of apartments in Toronto, called Habitat 2.0. This block is inspired by Habitat 67 project which was built in 1960’s in Montreal. The block is designed to look like a Mediterranean city in mountains.
The Habitat 2.0 would cover 67.000 square meters and would have 500 apartment units. Apartments at the top of the buildings will have unique terraces with planted trees. The buildings are planned to be made of cubical modules in order to ensure more natural light for each apartment unit. For the apartments which will not be possible to reach natural light there are couple of concave mirrors in order to bring the sunshine even there.
