 Responding to socio economic factors such as income levels, privacy, territoriality,
interactions etc.
 Considering materials, structure and services in relation to the design proposal.
 Integration of planned forms and three dimensional compositions (spatial organization).
Detailing for the physically differently abled and elderly.
