The residentialunitsareextensions of the central linear green space that works as a community space for residentsofallagegroups.The plots are aligned on the East-West axis ensuring maximum daylight in all habitable areas. Residential units are positioned to enhance cross ventilation which in turn reduces dependency on the HVAC system. The Wall window ration and orientation of the built form amplify natural daylighting. Phase 1 of the project includes Ground + 4 story structure. The low-rise building blocks minimize the structural cost adding to the cost-effectiveness. The elevation is designed with pergolas jails and other shading devices over fenestrations that complement the façade holistically and are highly cost effective and renders a distinct character to the project. Juxtaposed volumes create intricate shadow effects and also increase airflow, in turn, bringing about the cooling effect at a macro level. The flamboyant landscape design accommodatesboth soft and hard landscaping with gazebos, level changing mounds, Meditation Park, lush green lawns and an aquatic garden. A badminton court, jogging track, basketball court, skating ring are integrated with the landscape design.



Key sustainable features
The development is planned to ensure maximum efficiency of workflow and quality control. Measures are taken to minimize air pollution during and post construction phases to attain zero discharge within the complex. Post construction waste management techniques have also been planned.
The use of locally available materials adds to the cost effectiveness. Parking spaces are soft paved to maximize groundwater absorption and rainwater harvesting systems reduce the dependency on fresh water requirements. The runoff water of building terraces, paved areas and landscape areas are channelized to the rainwater harvesting structures which are designed as per the peak intensity of rainfall to suffice maximum surface runoff, avoiding flooding.
Color coded waste disposal bins have been located at prominent locations in the complex. The biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste is planned to be collected and stored at earmarked places. This waste will further be sent to the disposal sites.
