By abstracting and fragmenting the formal qualities of the neighboring roof typologies, collaging and layer material, and exposing parts of the existing site we aim to continue the narrative of connecting the old and new in a physical way. The exterior materiality then is composed of a series of different stone textures that juxtapose the existing site, while still being familiar.

By designing intergenerational housing that emphasizes communal space and technology recycling, there is an emphasis on embodying and adapting with the cycle of humans through each stage, which ultimately rethinks how we live. The app becomes the bridge between technology and the different generations

From the data recycled out of the residence technology the app learns the residence habits and reconfigures building elements to fit the users needs at a specific time. The bedroom walls can reconfigure into a workspace, lounge, and gym depending on the predicted needs of the user.

Similar to the wall, the stairs reconfigured into the needs of the user. To maximize space and functionality, the stairs can deconstruct to create a more efficient space for the users. This includes seating, work and study areas and storage. The stairs then become more than circulation, but also contribute to the spatial configuration of the shared space.
