Winding through the estate on a 35-degree day, streets are empty, but the mechanical hum of air-conditioners murmurs in the air, a sound sustaining the people concealed in houses on either side.

Bisley Place House is at the end of this street. Here, children are running to and fro—not just the inhabitants, but neighbourhood children, visitors from across fences. The aroma of fresh cooking carries unobstructed on the breeze from courtyard to curb. The ritual of cooking and meals happens right here on the street edge, a place for community.
