The project Dream City is a large scale housing project with 12 story buildings consist of 533 nos. of flats with all kinds of common and private amenities. The site is situated in gentle sloppy area surrounded by lush green land.
The project is an opportunity to reconcile architecture and landscape, the nature and people. The project is based on a simple idea : densifying the surrounding and create a large garden in the centre.
The three building in the southern side and one in the northern side creating a centre space which has been designed for common amenities and acts as a gathering space for all families living here.
From all four buildings, three of them are oriented on east - west axis and one is on north - south axis. The idea behind this orientation and planning is to protect inner spaces from harsh sunlight.
From a generously proportioned, shared lobby, three stairways and 6 lifts, provide access to 12 residential units per floor. Every residential unit has living cum dining space, cooking space and two or three bedrooms according to unit's categories.
All the spaces are having a full heighted glass facade which visually connects the space with outside. it also makes the volume more larger than it actually is.
The centre space of the site is having a large garden and a swimming pool with all the required amenity spaces.
The continues glass facade gives building rhythmic yet minimalist definition.
In the adjacent site, a large stadium along with a club house has been provided as a part of common amenities.
Overall, the project reflects 'The Mass' in terms of its architectural design, and in terms of its capacity for living. It reflects 'Simplicity and Minimalist approach' in terms of its space designing. It reflects 'convenience and facilities' in terms of planning.
