In order to address density in a human scale, it is essential to question and challenge the public and private realm of the built environment. Asking question about the relationship between indoor and outdoor, the natural landscape and the built form led to the design of Inter-Lace, a design proposal of 2 dwelling units with interlaced gardens in a 42’x120’ lot in East Austin that intends to play a bigger role of public landscape in the block. The project challenged the conventional form and program of a dwelling unit in order to introduce a new and meaningful housing prototype in the city of Austin. Interlace proposed using linear landscape design as a generating force for the overall design of the project. Manipulating the linear field using 2 main plant profile helps establishing the public and private zones within the block and the houses.The public plant profile utilizes the Hill Country native plant profiles while the private plant profile uses low-maintenance indoor plants, edible plants and therapy plants .Using outdoorscape as a driving force instead of the other way around helps creating experiential spaces within the houses and the lots. The city of Austin needs housing alternatives that are more meaningful and progressive for social, politics and culture advancement. Interlace readjusts the hierachy of indoor and outdoor living space and redefines the notion of private backyard of American Homes and transforms unused outdoor space into a more meaningful public space that is meant to be shared and used by the neighbors. Housing in the city of Austin ought to eliminate the nostalgic aesthetics of vernacular houses and design its form in respond to the context of the city. Despite the programmatic requirement, the form of housing must be an honest reflection of the values of the city. Besides providing shelter to the growing population, housings should preserve and strengthens the value of the city by providing a place for cultural cultivation and pedagogy purpose besides economic production as suggested by CodeNext through the live-work typology. Successful cities around the world such as Hong Kong, New York and London share a common trait- they have places that allow people interact efficiently and to have a rich and unique experiences. Progressive housing typologies have the potential to make experiential places in the cities. A progressive housing design can make the city a hub of unique experiences and cultures. The city goers and dwellers will then become more integral parts of the city life therefore increase the connectivity among people and strengthen the communities in the city.
