The basis of the method consists of three main components: a functional division criteria (area,
size, volume), design and socio-cultural factors. The basis of the plan geometry was adopted by
the courtyard of the London courtyard andresidential development of the areafocus based on
the best insolation of residential blocks. Distribution of the number of floors was formed on the
principle of ascending in the direction of the forest belt, to disclose the type of forest blocks,
situated east of and for better circulation of fresh air. Thus, we analyzed and compiled a detailed
list for each factor. Of the existing building, it was decided to retain only the old water tower.

All figures are based on the functional phase distribution were established in Grasshopper
system that has generated more than 12,000 choices of urban solutions. We have developed this
system for the design of neighborhoods and urban structures, it is a versatile tool able to adapt a
variety of criteria and indicators that allows you to calculate a variety of options, and then
possibility to choose and refine the most successful.
