The housing project demonstrates an example for low density development that is urban in character. Streets are created on upper levels that are connected through external stairways to achieve connectivity and community. A feature that is found usually in ground levels of preautomobile times is taken into the structure and these lively ‘streets’ characterize the sense of the community. These ‘streets’ are set back from the building façade to allow privacy to the housing units but also to enable hot air exhaust by increasing the air-stack effect by creating voids along the windows of the lower levels.
