Concept Statement - Knitting
Knitting represents a process of blending, which represents a wish that people from all over the world will knit into one warm family here. In addition, considering the majority of clients are female, who mostly love knitting at this age, this concept will be welcomed by them.
It is positive to encourage elderly people to walk. In extreme weather, they may prefer to walk inside. Consequently, providing an asymmetrical pathway can add visual changes to residentials. Also, a diagonal-designed pathway can extend the length of the path. Besides, applying natural colors, textures, and materials with plants can arouse residents' "biophilia" nature. Colorful knitting working as separation walls decorates the spaces, which creates transparency in different degrees by controlling the tightness of threads.

Interwoven is a combination of differences, which adopts elements from every city they lived in before. The apartment is similar to an old album, recording their past time.
The layout of the residential unit is symmetrical, which creates a stable and peaceful vibe. According to the couples' preference, the apartment will apply wooden furniture, brass and steel materials, and decorate with plants.
