Liveability

high-density, high-rise housing

The concerns of liveability and innovation form the core of our design processes. The projects Joyville Virar, Emami City Kolkatta and Godrej Elements Pune are all located away from the hustle of the main cities giving much needed solitude. While Joyville and Elements overlooks a large central open space, the extensive Emami city has a combination of linear and central open spaces thus giving a sense of belonging to all.

In contrast to these, the super luxurious and towering apartments of Lodha Park located in the middle of gentrified Worli, Mumbai offers beautiful city views. The chaotic urbanity is complimented by the peaceful wilderness of the landscape design of this scheme. A combination of opportunities is offered to the users to create their own private world along with being a subset of the larger community.

The basis of liveability stems from providing for spaces that encourage safe social interactions. A lot of attention is thus given to the design of the shared spaces- open or enclosed. Vehicular and pedestrian activity is intentionally segregated for safety. The refuge floors and decks of Joyville Virar are deliberately highlighted and enlarged to act as beautiful interfaces. The large central open space at Godrej Elements and multiple open spaces of Emami city are consciously planned to allow for more social transitions. Lodha Park, offers the large ‘park’ for all the social collaboration.

The aesthetics of the buildings are humanised by use of simple visual elements like scale, colour, massing, and landscape. The bold use of warm tones like orange at Joyville and maroon at Elements along its façade gives the otherwise mundane high rise a dramatic and youthful look. The dramatic play of decks, niches and refuge balconies creates a geometric rhythm through the four projects continues to captivate the user.

The interplay of key ideas like building a conscious and continuous relationship with the context, establishing connections within and outside of built environment and creating aesthetically beautiful compositions promote liveability and makes room for innovation.
