The project proposal permeates the boundaries between the existing communities in four ways:
Urban Element: The strong and weak elements determine which area should be regenerated or modified. Based on the informal settlement, new housing types - the slab and the village - are proposed.
Program: The current program is recombined to strengthen the four housing typologies as a whole community. Retail, community centers, and other programs are also introduced.
Road System: The original road for vehicles is converted into a pedestrian street, and several pocket spaces are inserted. Together, the pedestrian street and pocket spaces connect the four housing typologies.
