Goa Masterplan

The masterplan for this 33 acre site revolves around the preservation of the abundant old trees on the site. The areas with the densest clumps were identified as green zones and varying housing typologies like apartments, villas and farmhouses were proposed in the rest of the site. Among them, a unique hinged block apartment typology that can twist about the centre was developed to meander around the trees and avoid the steep portions of the contoured site. This was worked out in a manner that helped take maximum advantage of the natural contours and the views of the nearby river.

Each apartment block has 6 units all different in section stacked in pairs above each other. Convenience shopping and other programs were planned in the broader portion of the site along the highway.
