11 different plans of lower income households were developed to combine into a larger cluster (sector), so as to achieve well lit liveable conditions, in spite of having a high density.
The higher income dwelling units were designed such that to continue the architectural language of the lower income sectors in plan.
Area of 2-bedrooms unit = 93 sq.m. Area of 3-bedrooms unit = 100 sq.m. Total area of the cluster = 465 sq.m.
ď‚§ The site at the intersection of two major roads was developed with apartment blocks, as a combination of walk-ups and high rises. ď‚§ A cluster of 2-bedroom and 3bedroom flats was designed, that were meant for sale by the Delhi Development Authority for housing middle income group people.

The client for this house is an ex-Bollywood actress, who now takes dance classes at home, and her husband, a doctor, who sees patients at the home clinic. The idea was to segregate and yet find a balance between the family and work environments.

DESIGN INTERVENTION baoli at kotla ferozshah, new delhi (1st Year)
The idea of the intervention project was to gauge every individualâ€™s personal inferences after the group work, as to what could be the modern addition to the 13th century heritage structure.
For the design intervention, I drew inspiration from our results of conjectural analysis. We had observed from the ruins that there used to be a complex system for ornamental display of falling water, running through the baoli, and the structure had several stairs that connected the various levels.
My design proposal was a glass-walk, a continuous double helix staircase system exactly above the water, that ended with a viewing deck on the top. The idea was to create an element of surprise for the visitor, when he/she would enter into the stone monument and find the glass and steel structure only once he is inside. It was proposed to be in clear glass so that people could experience and appreciate the monument better with all its complexity.
