A central living area, extendable in its entirety to the adjacent patios in the north and south makes LISI unique. On a relatively small floor area, the exterior patios double the net living space. LISI offers private outdoor areas, which allow the residents to experience nature within their own home.

Flexible, automatically controlled shading elements avoid overheating on hot, summer days and significantly reduce cooling loads. Various architectural layers enable the residents to modify the transparency of the house according to the desired level of privacy. This ranges from an isolated cocoon to an open and communal place in the neighborhood.
