Suburban living in New Zealand is historically centered on a quarter acre section mentality. 
Consideration for higher density alternatives where increased interaction between neighbours and communities can be fostered are only just arising. The premise of modular living was to 
propose a subdivision of housing units in the Grenada Hills that foster a greater sense of 
community interaction. Each unit is pre-fabricated with canopy spaces adjoining each home. 
The canopy spaces contain playgrounds, community gardens and communal gathering spaces to encourage the inhabitants to interact and build a network within their suburb. 
The canopy form follows the contours of the landscape, and serves to create a stronger 
connection between the home and exterior environment.
