The theme of the Implementation is a set of suburban buildings which respect in size and proportion those around them. The result is an interesting complex that blends naturally and harmoniously with the character of the local architecture.

A broad walkway winds its way through the new quarter. It passes 5 individually designed squares and patios. Straightforward shapes and modern facades create an agreeable ensemble offering a range of usages.

The Idea part of the proposal visualizes the new centre of Botnang. Terraced seating areas, pedestals, a sheltered area, a fountain, sculptures and stately trees stamp an inviting atmosphere on the market place and create a charming and shady new focal point.
