The renderings for a new, amazing ’10-minute’ city have been published. Residents will find all of the comforts within 10 minutes of their homes.

Project H1 is a 504-square metre development (5,425 sq. ft.) that will be built near Seoul.

The miniature metropolis – with ‘spacious streets and nature at your doorstep’ – will encompass residential towers, parks, a hotel, a cinema, a library and co-working offices. Walking distance will be provided for access to wellness facilities like a running track and climbing walls, as well as swimming pools and other health services.

This miniature city will include residential towers and parks as well as a movie theater, library, and co-working office.

Seoul is connected by an underground station. The residents of the building will be encouraged and supported to take to the streets and bike in the pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.

Residents will have the option to leave their cars in underground parking lots, even though it is car-free.

Other facilities will include hydroponics (which involves the growing of plants without soil) and urban farming.

Sustainability will play a big role in the development’s layout – a water filtration system will be used to store rainwater and the area’s waste will be used to develop compost for the urban farms.

MailOnline received information from Unstudio that it is in planning phase. There has not been a set date to break ground.

Ben van Berkel (Unstudio co-founder) said in a statement that he had aimed to build the best modern 10-minute city where residents have the most enjoyable daily lives.

“We achieve this by incorporating a rich density of uplifting, carefully curated experiences on-site that offer a wide range of choices for their lifestyle, work, and leisure. This saves them time. Because more time is made when time is saved.

The idea of a “15-Minute City” is not new. In 2016, Carlos Moreno (French-Colombian scientist) came up the concept.
