On a building scale, research on optimized fibre structures informs the design of the buildings enabling them to have minimal footprints, supported primarily on bundled fibres in order to reduce disruption of the train lines below. Internally, this structural optimization allows the building core to be accessed via a full slab only every 12m, liberating the floors above and below while creating internal voids for the green spaces to be placed around the lift core. As a by-product of the existence of these green spaces internally, a series of interstitial spaces or semiprivate balconies overlooking the green area enhance interaction between the occupants of the surrounding housing units.
