The lots used for single dwelling units scheme have been designed with selected views to the inner landscape creating the most intimate area of the complex and integration to the whole compound, to get a uniform ideology (material and form-wise) , as well to provide identity to the context. These typologies complement each other for a better articulation in the area and the existing plots to get the same material and form structure.
