The residents of affordable housing are often people with shorter housing cycles, so it is important to adapt to changes in the number of occupants and households. The design is based on a modular system with a basic unit of 1.2 meters and a basic layout of a double-sided corridor. Different basic unit types, including single rooms, double rooms, three-person households, and multi-generational households, are created by combining prefabricated wall panels. These basic units are then equipped with prefabricated components, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and multi-functional furniture, to form complete residential units.

Residents can customize their living space based on their own habits and preferences. Prefabricated components include functional necessities like bathrooms and kitchens, as well as personalized elements like different types of multi-purpose furniture and movable walls. Multi-purpose furniture, such as folding beds and tables and chairs, can be used to transform the entire living space. For example, a living room can become a bedroom at night by simply converting the sofa into a bed and closing the movable wall. Depending on the residents' needs, the living space can be divided or combined, and the indoor components can be changed to create new unit types. In addition to individual living spaces, there are also shared facilities available for communal use, such as laundry rooms, clotheslines, and small gardens.
