Taking as an example the way biological cells self organize, perform, and grow in living systems, the residential units are designed as a system of organic aggregations. the system´s performance capabilities include adaptation to the required program density; for instance the cells can vary in size and shape depending on the number of inhabitants (as seen in the plan for house one and two) as well as number according to each suburban grouping. The 5m height proposed allows for vertical development. The design proposal also includes a shared area for cultivation (vegetables etc) and a green roof as a strategy for sustainability and local microclimate generation.
