Site Area – 10 Acres
Program – 600 Units (Single Room + Duplex), Landscaped theme courts, Recreational facilities, Cooperative provisions.
Status – Completed (Design Stage)
The proposed residential environment borrows its planning and organization from traditional spatial structuring, where by the built masses were organized around specified courtyards.
The courtyards, carrying forth their climatic significance, maintain security and functional efficiency. Each court has a defined program and the resultant detailing.
The designed landscape enables us to create an active and interactive community.
The divisions into courts creates neighbourhoods within the spread-out enclave. These neighbourhoods are charged by careful treatment and detailing of textures and materials, to create environments that carry a distinctive image.
Each court – Urban, Recreational & Agrarian – carries a specified theme and the involved elements are tastefully chosen and organized to achieve the desired results.
Apart from the primary courts each cluster boasts of ancillary functions defining their respective corners.
BUILT MASS FLEXIBILITY AND VOLUME GENERATION……
The Design scheme presents its units in an arrangement of 3 tower types:
In addition we went ahead and enhanced the flexibility of the unit arrangement within the towers itself. Each floor plate of every tower type has a unique configuration of units, maintaining the structural integrity.
The Duplex and Simplex units have been juggled and fitted into a never ending jigsaw. The result – every floor, every tower, and hence every neighbourhood carries an independent image.
THE VARIED TREATMENT……
The fluid floor plates are magnified by the elevation. The buildings, when arranged on site provide a non-repetetive image, and attempt to break away from the conventional housing issue – “loss of identity”.
To enhance this variation in appearance, the Duplex Units are treated with altered textures and materials.
The variations although seem random, together the impact is of a homogeneous designed mass.
