In most Indian cities, the typical urban multifamily residence evolves from a semi detached single family home built on a suburban or peri-urban plot along with the agglomeration of such plotted developments, both planned and unplanned, within the urban sprawl. The outward drifting city edge and improving connectivity increases the rental values leading to a residence splitting into multiple rental units. The need for privacy and the real estate aspirations of maximum floor plate area evolves their design typology into a multi-deck apartment stack with identical floor plans and a common access staircase usually neglecting the role of the staircase, courtyard and setbacks as shared community spaces. Thus, our design investigates the possibility of creating an extroverted multi-residence apartment, exploiting the external volumes as shared resources (for light and ventilation), encouraging a vibrant, socially connected, urbane lifestyle while still fulfilling the need for privacy and individuality. Developed purely for rental purpose, the house was conceptualized as a 4 bedroom duplex, a 2 bedroom simplex single floor unit and a 1 bedroom rooftop apartment catering to the typical tenant base of nuclear families, young couples and single professionals or students, maximizing rental outputs. With a non-identical plan at every level, the shared courtyard and front setback act as multi-level socio-petal spaces while also enlarging the perceived dimensions of the enclosed spaces. The volume is split into multiple spatial clusters with increased inter-connectivities through a manipulation of enclosed and open volumes. The open staircase combines with a terraced central courtyard to become community space with shared territoriality. The sheltered sunken court, cantilevered verandah and roof top terrace garden provide each apartment its own private outdoor space. Each apartment has been designed to be a unique home but one that encourages a socially vibrant lifestyle. The stairwell is designed to be a shared community vertical garden planted with potted herbs, flowering plants and aromatic creepers. The greens flow into the spaces through the Z-shaped green belt cutting across the floors. A fragrant Champak tree (Michalea champaca) is planted in the courtyard and the terrace is a landscaped lawn with planters. The subsequent intertwining of different spaces along with passive climate control techniques result in breathing volumes that perfectly fit in the local climate while reducing the dependency on the active systems and thus, saving on energy. The animated play in volumes is further fleshed out with the juxtaposition of materials and textures. Surface cladding patterns are detailed to respond to the introduction of voids and fenestrations.
