courtyard houses :: process

An urban level master plan and luxurious model house for a proposed gated community in Hyderabad. The idea was to design a master plan for the community, and predefine a set of guidelines for future designers to use when proposing independent residences for each plot.

The model house is envisaged as a layering of open and enclosed spaces, with a hierarchy of internal courtyards that bring the outdoors in without compromising on privacy.
