An exercise in housing without borders, this project ungates an otherwise gated community. A prototype dwelling unit is constantly readjusted based on its location and immediate context, thus ensuring variations in the dwelling design.
Open space is meticulously defined by the careful layering of streets, lanes, alleys, courtyards, parking space, and a pedestrian plaza. This methodical approach produces a clear and modern development with a familiar density reminiscent of medieval Indian cities. Each unit provides space for private landscaping, deliberately encouraging residents to express their individuality. Post-occupation studies show a high degree of user participation in small scale design of semi-public spaces.
