The approach to designing the industrial township housing, often referred to as housing colonies, diverges from the typical hierarchical spatial segregation commonly associated with such developments. Instead, a conscious decision is made to build only in open pockets within a verdant site. This strategic placement of built forms, articulated along the edge of the site, facilitates the creation of a continuous green central community space. This design intervention aims to erase hierarchies of user groups and social class, fostering a sense of inclusivity and community cohesion.

Escalating land prices in Mumbai is forcing out the families that serve the privileged classes. The domestic help, drivers, sweepers, peons etc are the invisible cogs that daily ensure smooth running of the city. Currently they are being dis-housed from their decades old housing, since this has caught the eye of developers; and they are forced to relocate further from their primary sources of income. Currently, this segment forms 50-60 % of the urban population of Mumbai. The commute between home and work thus becomes a critical factor in site selection. If this isn’t handled adequately (eg, the commute is a 2hr+ journey each way), the new homes get rented out and the people return to squat closer to their places of work.
