XL Architecture+Engineering proposed a triple mechanism design strategy that also characterizes XL conception of architectural design. Architectural meaning is subjected to latency: In this case, the envelope which is composed of porcelain tiles in the colors of General Electric, Osram and Panasonic are intertwined so as to define new relations within their surroundings and themselves.

Within a quadruple mechanism of composition in terms of “territoriality”: “Participation” enables to design zones of collective experience, “Transform” enables to design spaces shifting their meanings and interrelations throughout time, “Liberate” enables to design spaces dissolving their visual and perceptual boundaries and “Unfold” enables to design spaces defining their surroundings – the street, the city, hence the extensions on the rear facade, backyard and the additional roof are perceived as the illusional unfolding of the monolithic main building.

A design strategy called as “Box Strategy” proposes new and creative ways of using, producing, operating and consuming spaces.
