The project maximizes the resident’s opportunity to interact with the outside, an intrinsic part of traditional Indian lifestyles. To address the transition of lifestyle of a pre-dominantly low-rise, bungalow living population in Delhi and Gurgaon, where urbanization and migratory pressures have resulted in high-rise living, this project aims to be that bridge, bringing the bungalow to a high-rise format. The masterplan of the site is a result of comprehensive daylight analysis such that certain areas have access to the sun during winters and shade during the summers which allow for the landscape to be used through the year. The buildings are oriented in a manner which harnesses the monsoon winds but block out the hot summer winds.
