The relation between the house’s  interiors and exterior surroundings should be taken into consideration. The proposed solution should be based on a  strong concept.

The area of the house must not exceed 250 sq. ft. Adaptability is a vital aspect for all the designs. The house should respond to the ever-changing needs of its users and the site context it sits in. The designed solution may not be limited to a site, but it can be designed as a versatile module or to be mobile. The participants would be needed to provide a justification for the same. The interior spaces should include: Living Area | Sleeping Area for 2 | Cooking and Dining Area | Toilet | Workspace | Any other aspect the participant wishes to add. Client interaction is one of the crucial factors of the design solution.
