The project deals with redevelopment of eighteen plots in the inner city of Mumbai, ad measuring almost 250m of length. The length of the site is expressed through a 250m long linear built form, which grows with acquisition of subsequent plots. The building expands over three phases leaving appropriate recreational grounds to handle the density of the development. The building typology houses rehabilitation and sale component in the same building forming a linear landmark along the site. The class differences of both components are configured through segregation of movements. The built form is sculpted to release voids at different levels, which behave as recreational planes for various user groups.
