Drømmehagen, or ”The Dream Garden”, carries on and interprets Drøbak’s distinctive landscape and buildings with well-preserved wooden houses, sensuous gardens, intimate squares and narrow streets. A square with outdoor serving, water mirrors and an outdoor staircase to linger on, create a welcoming urban space for the residents and visitors. The outdoor staircase connects the square and street level with the courtyard area. With its lush vegetation, the courtyard creates a green heart in the centre of the houses, making room for community and activities such as gardening. Drømmehagen’s green islands create diverse niches that invite to stay in a comfortable microclimate and has vegetation composed to highlight the changing seasons.
