Affordable Housing, Mumbai
‘The Nest’ is a dream home for an aspiring modern family. It is a low-cost housing project on a community-based plot in North Mumbai.
Designing Nest with Constraints
The central entrance splits the floor plate in half. As a result, the ground level has a living area on one side, whereas a kitchen and compact dining on the other. Thus, minimizing the circulation area on the floor
The upper level has two bedrooms with attached balconies and restrooms. Since ‘The Nest’ is a compact home, the terrace acts as a space for family gatherings, evening sit-outs and a party place over the weekends.
Any cleaner and bolder form demands considerable detail from a structural perspective. Saying so, Virtual construction in BIM allowed us for that smarter integration of structure as well as accurate material take off for this project.
