All members felt that the house layout needed to provide for independent living and yet be able to bring the family together. What emerged early on was the need for the three units to be physically interconnected and arranged so as to overlook into a central court. The design mediates between a desire to open out to the large well planted estate and the more traditional morphology of a compound house that rely on careful assemblage of multiple built parts so as to capture spaces within. The plan is conceived as three independent bars that sit in the field of green enclosing varying scales of open space/courts. These bars are then interlocked using elements such as lobbies, covered colonnade, compound walls, etc, thereby providing basic functional comforts, access, and security.
