Vrindavan is a town in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, India. It is the site of an
ancient forest which is the region where, according to the Mahabharata, the
Supreme Lord Krishna spent his childhood days. This has been selected in view of
its easy accessibility from national highway-2 and natural landscape adjoining the
city of Vrindavan on Chhatikara road. This site is surrounded by roads on three
sides and the venture is planned to meet highest standards of ecology and
architecture focusing on aesthetic norms. The town is about 10 km away from
Mathura, the city of Lord Krishna's birthplace, near the Agra-Delhi highway.

Understand the function of the housing for basic planning. So, tried to make hierarchy- is about understanding how and why some parts carry more visual weight than others, and using that to create balanced (or unbalanced) structures, depending on overall plans. I have placed elements in more hierarchical positions. Within a square, the center is the most hierarchical. The end of an axis is naturally more hierarchical than points along the line.
