Wherever you have empty spaces left, put in some minor services, this reduces the space usage as well as gives you benefits.

Use of replanishable energy wherever possible... is the key.

You can arrange all the services at backyards which are not commonly used..

Secondly, you can give level differences..

Fly ash can be used as a cost effective construction material...

Its better if you could discuss your design here first.. then only can suggest better...

Make your planning simple and much more practical, and use optimum area in creating a space.

If u can put some potographs or rough sketches of your project then we can discuss more..
