Space is not an objective „fact” but always an area in-between things, people, and other living beings. Since we inhabit the earth as many, we always live in interspaces. In contrast to a free space, which suggests autonomy, the interspace (the in-between) refers to relationships that are characterized by different intensities.

Respect for the interspace is essential for guaranteeing a life in dignity. Spaces are structured according to a certain order which people can, over time, change and shape—for instance by cleaning up. The quality of a space depends on the possibility of realizing notions of order that both serve necessity and make room for desire. In this sense well-maintained spaces offer security, comfort, and a feeling of belonging. Cultures can grow, transform, and thrive there.

For a good life, it is important that the boundaries of spaces do not become rigid compartments, in which privileges are upheld and hierarchies are strengthened. They should rather remain permeable and flexible providing a free view of the world.
