Dark's proposal for a residential development in Masserud Gård calls for an "inclusive landscape principle". That means creating a 7,000 square meters development that follows the curvature of the landscape, connecting the contemporary buildings with a network of paths and small plazas. Three typologies work together to create pockets of private lawns and gardens, leaving the option open for the dissimilar inhabitants to meet and socialize in common activity areas if they are so inclined.

Terrace buildings on the south end of the plot overlook lush hiking paths, while to the north, three and four-storey buildings are set against the forest to as not to obstruct views. The entire area is conceived so as to maximize sunlight and views of the surrounding terrain for all residents.
