ELEMENTAL's research showed that "it is in exactly these types of towns where the worst urban standard is found", and for this reason they felt it more important to focus on the quality of the building rather than its completeness.
Their design for Villa Verde is an attempt to show that their original equation still holds true one step higher up the housing ladder; that there is intrinsic value in this incremental construction process, whether it is used at the cheaper or the more expensive end of social housing. Fundamentally, it is a demonstration that all homeowners are aspirational, and that for many homeowners the best way to account for this aspiration is to provide flexibility and space to expand. On an aesthetic level, Villa Verde also shows that there is a certain neighborly quality in this type of development where homeowners have more input into the final appearance of the building.

In those meetings she made sure each person had some kind of challenging, meaningful project to work on. She also made sure each had at least one project on that involved collaboration with other people.
