Placement of rooms, windows, doors, toilets, ducts, entrances, setbacks, wardrobes, staircases etc... were all dictated by Vastu Shastra (A traditional Hindhu system of Architecture)
To get privacy and general sense of design in the house, other means and techniques were devised.
One of the main elements devised was the long steel and wood fence on the east side, to get privacy from the neighbours. (for the two main bedrooms on the first floor)
Low maintenance materials like form faced concrete for the ceiling,cement finish flooring and wood for the wardrobes are used for a cool and calm existence.
