A modular village has been proposed by Danish architect Sigurd Larsen who attempts to offer viable solutions to the housing crisis in Berlin. As the urban population is steadily growing, there is a demand for flexible residencies that are also affordable. Working with the inevitable space restrictions, Sigurd Larsen offers a modular village concept that is envisioned to occupy the roofs of existing apartment buildings.

The concept boasts a linear park on the roof of a building located between Kreuzberg and Mitte -- two neighborhoods in the city. The strip of greenery will be surrounded by wooden units that have been "assembled using a modular system." Each dwelling will boast the necessary amenities, a window that faces toward the city and the option for further plug-in modules for space optimization.
