Rustique was a180 apartment project in Whitefield. The long and narrow site resulted in two linear blocks of apartments aligned parallel to a central green space. A steep decline towards the rear of the site resulted in a very large (and subsequently useful) reservoir for rainwater harvested from the building roof. The roof of this reservoir houses the recreational bay. A studied randomness in the design of the façade has resulted in staggered terraces and verandahs that open on to the central green space.
