Goa Micro Housing

Best Project of Residential Estate

About the project
The brief was to design small studio sized apartments that could be looked at as a venue for investment or an alternate home away from home for shorter durations. The project was conceptualized primarily to target the second home buyers for temporary, occasional or intermittent stay in Goa. Set on a hill in Reis Margos — a small village on the northern bank of Mandovi River in Goa, the site facing east, brought about an interesting challenge to build on the heavily contoured topography. The housing project was conceived as a birds nest with a centre cozy core, surrounded by thicker protective layers and nestled within the greenery of the hill. Our intent was to create a central concourse that not only becomes a very public space or doubles up as a viewing deck looking out and beyond the units but also visually connects the road with the hill in the backdrop. A successful housing is not just about habitable closed spaces but one which keeps the shared community spaces at its core.
