The client is a property developer in Mumbai. The developer is looking to create an affordable line of weekend homes in the mainland region across Mumbai’s island, for which we were consulted. The brief was to cater to city dwellers and create a retreat with privacy as well as common recreational facilities.
We envisioned three different typologies with varying conditions of outdoor spaces. The outdoor spaces would give the environment adequate vibrancy based on the users’ engagement with the space.
The courtyard terrace type, the deck type and the duplex-balcony type were evolved to create variation and choices based on a weekend customer lifestyle and requirement.
The different typologies have been merged into a homogeneous row house condition with joint open spaces in-between the blocks. The open spaces are rendered with raised landscaped zones which provide for adequate privacy with the tree foliage. The double loaded corridor carries common circulation and services of the functions allowing for clear openings on the view side.
