Unifying Urban Fabric: Introducing a Cohesive Typology

Integrating residential and commercial functions within the same neighborhood or building complex fosters a cohesive typology by designing shared courtyards and public spaces serves as a unifying element within a neighborhood. These areas encourage social interaction, community engagement, and a sense of belonging, as suggested by “A Pattern Language.” Encouraging incremental development and adaptive reuse of existing structures allows for the gradual evolution of a cohesive typology over time which the site demands. In an endeavor to preserve and celebrate the cultural and architectural heritage of a place, particular attention is directed towards the ‘otlas’ or interfaces.
