The building consists of 15 apartments which are two bed roomed and 90 sq m in area. The ensemble of units is L shaped surrounding a children's play area .Within the unit all rooms are designed for cross ventilation which the prevailing climate demands. The principal rooms within the apartment are oriented towards the playground of the adjacent school while the kitchens are located so as to enable mothers to supervise the children while at play.

The structure is RCC framed with brick walls, sliding windows in aluminium, and floors in ceramic tiles. Although the site is in a village the apartments are well appointed and of the same standards as in cities.
