Our concept vision lies in the following design principles below that redefines living to respect the generational differences and creating a healthy and well-being lifestyle living for all as the foremost design driver:

  1. All units are designed as individual “houses” with its own proper outdoor “garden” regardless of its size and position.
  2. All units have cross ventilation to ensure resourceful use of the environment.
  3. All units are oriented north-south to ensure maximum access to sunlight.
  4. All units have private lift-staircase access to ensure security and privacy.
  5. Functional layout allows flexibility-transformable spaces to accommodate different use, different ages and family structure.
  6. All units minimizes partitions yet maintains privacy.
  7. All units promote sense of home in the universal sense of respecting individual and collective spaces.

The fundamental idea of our concept lies in this simple precept: one residential unit + one outdoor garden = one home.
