Everything had to be `different’ from typical Mumbai high-rise apartment housing. </li></ul><ul><li>As land was not scarce, low-density low-rise development option was adopted. Small blocks of houses are layed out in a `garden city’ concept, where `greenery’ subdues the buildings and pedestrians have their right of way.   </li></ul><ul><li>There are four types of dwelling units provided in this township of over 2,500 families. The smallest ones of about 45 sqm each (Type-A) are grouped in four-storey walk-ups with 16 units in each block. </li></ul><ul><li>The Type-B houses of 60 sqm are places in three storey blocks with six units in each and the Type C houses of 75 sqm are in two-storey blocks with only four units in each.

The type D unit is designed for the high officials of JNPT. Each is a three bedroom duplex unit having individual plots with car porch, gardens and terraces.   </li></ul>

The natural features on site – the rainwater channel that ran down the center and the existing clump of trees were the major structuring elements of the layout plan. </li></ul><ul><li>A basic movement pattern together with the entry points was defined with activity zoning to regulate the location of buildings and other structures according to function. This explains the absence of an articulated complex. </li></ul><ul><li>The buildings are semi-rustic in appearance and very scaled down in proportions. </li></ul><ul><li>They have been sited in a manner as to leave plenty of breathing and strolling space between them, but not so far apart as to create a sense of cold isolation. </li></ul>
