The rectilinear plot with opening on the shorter side was a challenge that was spun into the core of design concept. To break the linearity of the form, a series of courtyards of different sizes were created. This induced the formation of spaces with varying depths and volume, showcasing a play of solids and voids, further providing the desired lighting and ventilation. Varied shapes in fenestration also add to the dynamics of the space by altering light exposure.
