Size: 33,00,000 sq ft | 18.2 acres

The project sits within the 614 acre Adani Shantigram Township, a development of residential, commercial, office, hospitality and recreational facilities, which should grow into one of the largest integrated township developments of Ahmedabad. The brief was to build residential and assisted living high-rise, low-cost developments. At Morphogenesis, we do not believe that assisted living can work optimally in isolation, hence we find ways to create strong community linkages where possible. In this project, the cluster of regular residential towers and the cluster of assisted living towers share a common landscape that is notionally segregated by the positioning of the club-house, yet integrated overall. Through this project, Morphogenesis addresses issues of affordability and sustainability at grass root level, yet assigning a high priority to livability. Cost effectiveness is maintained through standardization and optimization of basic design elements such as the doors, windows, toilet sizes, skirting heights. Lintels were avoided by fixing all opening sizes at the bottom of beam level, this cut down cost of additional shuttering. Spatial organization of individual units ensures full cross-ventilation and natural light in all living spaces, this brings down mechanical dependence. This approach follows through at site level with facilities and amenities that are atypical of projects in this cost bracket, taking full cognizance of multi-generational living and the socio-cultural lifestyle of the end user.
