Housing is the core need of human beings providing shelter, safety, privacy for them and their respective families. A community of such shelters where respective families live together that provides them with security, shared space, recreation spaces, amenities, all within close vicinity, gives rise to a neighbourhood. A housing community that has a mix of individual, family type, gender helps keep the societal balance and caters to the growing needs of family. In the current scenario, with the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic, many aspects about community housing have required to be updated. Thus, for this design exercise, students are expected to research and analyse ways families live, changing living and working patterns due to the pandemic and evolve design solutions to cater to this.
