Urban Cactus.

Urban Cactus is a housing project designed by architects, Ben Huygen and Jasper Jaegers from UCX Architects that is to be located in Vuurplaat Section of Rotterdam. As the name suggests, it is inspired by a cactus as it would be the "green nerve" of the urban landscape. It will house 98 units in it's 19 floors. Every unit would have it's own big outdoor space which creates that overlapping design that gives this development its character. Not having it in a symmetrical block, also gives the units more exposure to natural lighting.
