Abstract: How can architecture foster cohabitation through the multiple scales of the built environment? Part of this answer lies within the theoretical framework which explores ecological urbanism, specifically through the theories of landscape as a medium, biophilia, and wildlife inclusivity. The other part of the answer is a study of the building components and architectural forms informed by case studies of green buildings. This will impart the move to integrate nature within the site of Villiers Island, located in the Toronto Port Lands. The site is part of an ongoing revitalization project and an active bird flyover. The issue with the current master plan is that it proposed a harsh divide between the urban and natural ecosystems, causing the conflict. As humans dominate a large part of the Earth, the goal is to seek cohabitation for both humans and non-humans within this new ecosystem through a midrise, mixed-use residential building
