Client: Ambuja Neotia & Luxmi Township

Status: Built

Size: 5,27,000 sq ft | 10.5 acres

The Residency is group housing located at the entrance to the township, straddling the southeast plateau edge of the site. It is developed on a site of approximately 10.5 acres with a total of about 450 units housing over 2000 people. The housing developed is of two types; a medium-rise strip that sits on the edge of the plateau and a low-rise court-cluster formation covering the rest of the site. This offers multiple choices for the design of the apartments, to optimize the views available, and create through design multiplicity in community character, relationship with ground and apartment sizing. Both types of apartments have possibilities of single bedroom, two bedrooms, three bedrooms and four bedrooms units (single floor and duplex variations) ranging in area from 750 sqft to 3000 sqft. A series of landscaped green reserves weave through the housing culminating in a large open green area situated at the eastern edge of the site. A small club with recreational facilities sits at this end.
