The project is located on a site adjacent to the plant building. It provides housing for the company's management staff numbering 38. The plans of the houses are generic, differences in the houses for various categories of staff being incremental to the basic generic plan.

The houses are grouped around a central open space, which is landscaped. The individual houses have their own courtyards which overlook the central open space. The houses are built of uncoursed laterite masonary that is available locally. Since Kudal tends to receive heavy rainfall during the monsoons, the roofs are tiled and sloped in keeping with local traditions.
