Client: Uppal Housing

Status: Built

Size: 4,30,000 sq ft | 5.4 acres

The project’s objective is to develop a new prototype for housing in Chandigarh as an entity to address issues of liveability, spatial configuration, environmental and social issues, while shifting away from the archetypal morphology of high specification  residential modules and equipment crammed into an undersized apartment. The client brief called for the generation of maximum built-up area for residential accommodation within the  imposed controls of 1.5 FAR with 40% ground coverage and most importantly to be able to stay within the height limit of 50 feet. The challenge was to be able to establish a model which would  achieve the high FAR requirements and yet construct an environment that is crucial for a residential development within the development controls of ground coverage and height.
