David Adjaye has formulated a master plan for a series of light-filled residential homes in Munich, Germany.

Located within earshot of the Englische Garten ("The English Garden"), one the largest public parks in the world, the future property, which is being developed by real estate firm Euroboden, will occupy a total area of 2,000 sq m and feature 14 units, some of which will be townhouses and suites.

According to Adjaye, the residences will be enhanced by community courtyards, sunken gardens, and open-air, terraced spaces.

"The porousness of the building site is in harmony with the lush nature of its surroundings," he said.

Details on the project's construction timeline have not yet been announced.

Adjaye has long been a proponent of using design-based strategies to positively shape mental attitudes. In the book, David Adjaye: Making Public Buildings: Customization Imbrication Specificity, which was published in 2006, Adjaye described buildings as "deeply emotive structures which form our psyche".

He continued: "People think they're just things they manoeuvre through. But the makeup of a person is influenced by the nature of spaces."
