The layout was conceptualized as a free plan around a central courtyard. The levels and accesses were carefully divided between the two floors to provide comfort and privacy to both. The architectural vocabulary for the home is derived as a response to the newer development close to the site and its neighbourhood. The stark contrast of glass facades of the IT Park on one hand and the old existing clusters and slums on the other hand were responded to by developing a blank facade, consisting of the most basic architectural element, the 'plane'. The stacked planes convey the need to go back to the essentials of architecture in the midst of the rapid construction happening all around.
