The challenge of housing rests in creating a sense of community. To bring people together is not only establishing common ground, but also minimizing conflicts and providing the right degree of separation. When the design respects an individual's needs to thrive, one would treasure such niche and community. If each resident is a thread of diverse culture and preferences, our design likens a fabric that weaves the community tight.
Our units and landscape are woven together to form a porous perimeter and a courtyard. Unit shift and slide to create pockets of entrances and gardens; walls similarly extend to provide sun shading and privacy. The sloped roofs pronounces each module's profile while "knitting" light and air through the clerestory windows. The shared courtyard, by criss-crossing paving materials and green, delineates indefinite boundary of a public space that can expand or contract to suit the residents.
如何在居住環境建立社區意識是一個挑戰。要將人們聚集一起，不僅要建立共通點，減少人們的衝突，也要適當的分離人們所居住的空間。我們的設計尊重個人成長，也珍惜社區意識的重要性。如果居民是一條多元文化和喜好的線，我們的設計就像會圍繞社會的織品。單位可以任意地移動和滑動成不同變化的入口和花園； 牆壁也可以伸缩，能夠給住客隱私和遮陽。 傾斜的屋頂可以給通過天窗「編織」光線和空氣到屋內。 共用庭院裏的路面用了十字形的設計，旁邊也有樹木，這能展現公共空間無限邊界和讓居民任意擴展或收縮空間。
