The lack of rigid boundaries allows growing spaces, living spaces, and working spaces to overlap throughout the building. Individuals can contribute to all of these spheres simultaneously in one space, or overlap with other community members.

The facade presents moments of misalignment with the existing context, which never presents one clear logic for massing. This misalignment reverberates through the plan, ensuring both moments of continuity and slippage.

Niches of high efficiency (specifically for working, growing or sleeping) are nested within larger community spaces, defined by lighting conditions that are meant to increase productivity in those spaces. For example, a purple/pink UV light defines the high-efficiency underground production space.
