The project is to achieve the multi-generation living in a mixed neighbourhood with a functioning social community, and needed to provide diverse opportunities for communication and interaction in good quality of semi- public spaces. The vision of this place is to create community, a model of a micro society where people find their own space for privacy, as well as places of gathering, exchange, movement and education.

The building mainly focus on the family as different family comes with different background. To cope with this issue, the design intended to focus on the co-living that resident have the opportunity to live within the same. The building contains units of different sizes, layouts, and typologies, with different mean of access. The central design idea is to create opportunities for social interaction and communal activities. Market stall and some flexible programme will be held at the ground floor to create a new diverse zone for different operations under the one roof area. The temporary structure of the market can be changed to another function for resting and communicating. Both among the residents themselves as well as with the surrounding neighbourhood.
