Reside Mumbai, Seaside Mumbai

Hypothetical Scheme for a Seaside Housing in Mumbai, India

Dwelling and housing at seaside is a geographic question. The proposed design redefines the seaside in Worli as a new public domain with innovative housing connected to the tight knit fabric of an existing urban village. Inspired by the language of “chawls”, housing is divided in clusters, connected in a linear way along the edge, with court type spaces looking towards the sea. The blocks in cluster vary in width to accommodate different housing demands. The ground level constitutes a “new street” that will incorporate the vitality of Worli village, community life of the housing, and continuous seaside promenade linking the city and project site.
