Incremental housing

The Project aims at providing an incremental housing to the community living in Nehrunagar Surat. The idea is amalgamation of BV Doshi’s Aranya housing and Alejandro Aravena’s Quinto Monrey. The process of mass housing sounds industrial which lacks a personal touch or the individualistic nature of the present site. It aims at providing half built houses which are affordable and give them an opportunity to expand in the prescribed limit as a rule. This will help the community to expand when their family size increases or the financial stability strengthen. Provision of wide otlas and plinth and corridors on the upper level gives them an opportunity to live and work in the same space which already exists on site. This also increases chance interactions and enhances communal living.
