Client: Woodside Developments Pvt. Ltd.

Status: Built

Size: 1,25,000 sq ft I 12 acres

The site is a highly contoured land with level differences of about 100 m within the site. The neighbourhood is predominantly used for agriculture and vegetation, hence the site exists within a vast green, mountainous landscape. The project brief called for the construction of an exclusive, high-end residential development comprising of 37 cottages of four types based on design, size and location within the site, and other integrated common facilities at varying heights. Layering of the base principles of circulation (existing and proposed), public amenities and the slope, led to the development of the site plan. The cottages and the internal road networks have been strategically placed in order to minimize the intervention through cutting and filling of the natural terrain of the region, whilst retaining the maximum of the existing vegetation and contours as undisturbed.  Cottages are positioned on the slope in a manner that ensures unobstructed panoramic views of the scenic hills of the Shimla valley; the largest ones enjoy the farthest view. This is achieved by maintaining a minimum height difference between the roof level of each cottage and the ground level of the preceding cottage uphill.
