Yamuna Apartments
New Delhi, India
Three basic types of housing units have been combined on a repetitive basis to form the individual housing blocks. Their plans were largely dictated by social, functional and climatic considerations. Each flat comprises of a distinct communal and private area with an attached balcony overlooking the pedestrian street. Due consideration was given to climatic constraints and each unit is protected by a balcony or a terrace. The arrangement of rooms ensures adequate cross ventilation, further enhanced by the fact that the flats open on two sides and by the provision of internal light and ventilation shafts.
