‘The Verandas’ is a luxury housing project in Gurugram, the hub of all commercial and residential development in suburban NCR. The brief commissioned a programme based on the adaptation of ‘luxurious living’ in the contemporary context. Re-inventing the traditional housing morphology, the intent was to create ‘bungalows in the sky’ with sufficient open space in the form of terraces for each apartment in order to craft a three-dimensional urban environment. Plots are demarcated within the site as per view lines; each block is stacked and elevated as horizontal layers to create a lively urban milieu above the ground. The verandah, therefore, attempts to address the issues of cross-ventilation, daylight, shading, open space, and views/privacy in each apartment and provides it with a unique individuality and undivided views of the landscape. Traditionally, encounter and interaction are restricted to the ground level; however, the open space morphology of the verandahs and terraces aids in expanding this nature to the upper levels creating an ambience for social interaction and community bonding, whilst maintaining a sense of privacy.
