The project was exploration in ways of living in dense urban environments of Mumbai. The project sits on a small piece of land in the Gaothan of Bandra. Located in a crowded urban environment, this project had to creatively respond to the extreme constraints of space.

A four storey structure is made up of four houses occupying area of 200 Sq.m. The building occupies maximum foot print on the plot. The scale of the housing is shaped to give it a character of a single house. The lower corner of the structure is spliced to serve as an entrance the building. The top is chamfered too, to release a set of overlooking terraces.
