Physical Private terrace linking the house to the street.

Broader Enhancing function of common domains; Low-intensity communication pathways; Common domain at the focal point of a structure; Hierachy of perspectives favouring the broadest; Linear relationships enhanced by non-linear processes; Arrangement of structures ot engender fruitful interfaces; Internal transition spaces enhancing structural entry points; Integration of non-linearity into integrative superstructure; Blended integration of formal structure and informal context; Direct relationship between structures and communication pathways.

Narrower Flexible interfaces; Ambiguous boundaries; Attractive temporary positions; Structure-enfolded insight domain; Embedding fixity within variability; Partially enclosed internal domains; Sequence of viewpoint loci within a structure; Maintaining distinctions between contextual levels; Hospitable non-linear domain external to structures; Opportunities for perspectives of decreasing activity; Protecting non-linear contexts from communication pathways; Overview domains at interfaces of the structure with the external environment; Semi-autonomous contexts for perspectives of decreasing activity.
