portuguese firm OODA and madrid-based OOIIO architecture have collaborated to create ‘leeuwarden housing – urban water lilies’, a residential proposal in leeuwarden, the netherlands. the design integrates water from the adjacent river, cultural traditions and a balance of rural character within an urban setting. derived from the presence of water lilies in the freisland province, the site has been envisioned as a series of lily pads upon which rest a diverse range of housing typologies.

a series of waterways divide plots with structures, green spaces and agricultural areas. comprised of a network of floating islands, the masterplan bridges between water and land creating opportunities for sustainable ecosystems to develop. the city and natural environment are able to coexist, while integrating sports, agricultural and public areas for dwellers. access for cars and bicycle paths weave through the complex. sustainability is introduced with an apartment tower of stacked volumes with integrated wind turbines to power the site along with various locations for solar and geothermal energy collection as well as water recycling.
