London Regent`s Canal fabric is currently transforming from industrial into a mixture between cultural, artist, working, and residential spaces. New forms of living are highly needed in this area. A vertical living condition will create new ground as a building mass. The formal reading of the existing architectural examples will be explored through the abstraction into the new design object – three-dimensional element, which will be created during the studies and the relation between the architectural and the geometrical effects. As the second part of the design strategy, the part-relation will be expressed through the compositional studies to achieve the building mass. The relation between one and many will be expressed through the three-dimensional organizational principles based on seven diagrams of O. M. Ungars. Here multiple urban conditions emerge through the relation between the architectural-urban effects and overlap of several organizational principles of inside-outside diagrams of O. M. Ungars. The artificial ground condition turns into a vertical urban textile.
