The residential development is a part of the TVH Kovai Centre consisting of high-rise residential towers, a shopping mall and villas. The site planning strategy leads to the placement of towers in a manner that creates green pockets in lieu of a consolidated green which helps in avoiding the towers overlooking into each other. Each cluster is defined by a central core around which the four units are located, each of which has an individual balcony. Environmental analysis help to define the placement of the parks, play areas and recreational areas is done as per time of use, function and shade requirements. Openable windows and ‘jaalis’ take care of natural ventilation whereas larger fenestrations and a glazed façade optimize natural light. Façade design was informed by factors such as natural lighting, sun shading, natural ventilation and rain protection. A basic frame in concrete was devised to highlight the balconies and a parapet in wood/steel was then formed around the balcony. These two layers were then combined to form a single entity. A third layer was added in the form of coloured walls to add drama to the façade and highlight the sub frame.
