The Housing redevelopment project in sub-urban Mumbai embraces the tight new Mumbai development regulation code with aplomb. The Project houses "green" elements for social interaction and protection against the intense summer heat gain by injecting green spaces on the ground floor and terrace space, including a vertical green wall system protecting the building mass from solar radiation on the south-west corner.
66,000 bricks were cast on site and over 200 drawings were published towards the fabrication of the parametric "brick" wall system.
The Digital brick wall is laced on the street level interface and also forms the "crown" of the building. The Chajja ( horizontal weather shade system ) has "moon roof" cutouts that add to the visual dynamic of the project
