This is a housing project in banaras . Site requirements were 10 units of 110sq.m. (large house) 30 units of 78sq.m. (medium house) and 30 units of 45 sq. m. (small house).
1. Placing the 10 large units on the ground floor and rest of the units above making it g+3. So there was less mass on the ground which gives more open land and more mass on the above making it cantelevered and shading the open spaces on the ground.
2. Making it interactive by providing overlooking terraced gardens.
3. Raising the plinth by one floor so that it becomes a peoples space where there is no disturbance by the cars and animals and the ground floor becomes the parking area.
