The de­sign of this con­tem­po­rary, well-planned town­ship by De­sign Fo­rum In­ter­naɵonal in col­lab­o­raɵon with DP - Sin­ga­pore, aims to craō villa-like res­i­dences within the ben­e­fits of a large res­i­denɵal com­plex with com­mu­nal ameniɵes and the se­cu­rity of a gated en­clave

The mas­ter­plan of Emer­ald Gar­den in Kan­pur com­prises res­i­den­tial plots, flats, club­house, com­mer­cial, etc. with 60% of the built vol­ume be­ing de­signed as a low-rise de­vel­op­ment. The client brief called for a mix of 3, 4 and 5 BHK units, amidst reg­u­lar tow­ers and iconic tow­ers with an as­sort­ment of units split into reg­u­lar floors, pent­houses, gar­den apart­ments and club-side apart­ments. The plan­ning ap­proach aims to con­sol­i­date the cen­tral greens, while craft­ing vista views to­wards the low-rise de­vel­op­ment. Break­ing away from the tra­di­tional 4 units to a box clus­ter, there is a fo­cus on club­bing two units to­gether into the dif­fer­ent arms of the clus­ter, and en­abling the sun, wind and view re­quire­ments of the tow­ers.

The pal­ette of ma­te­ri­als was se­lected for the aes­thet­ics, func­tion­al­ity and easy main­te­nance over a pe­riod of time. The fen­es­tra­tion is a com­bi­na­tion of UPVC win­dows and struc­tural glaz­ing with low emis­siv­ity glass for en­ergy con­ser­va­tion. The façade is a com­bi­na­tion of stone cladding on the lower floors, while the up­per floors are of dou­ble plas­ter and weather-re­sis­tant paint. The façade is in­ter­spersed with metal lou­vers and per­go­las to break the monotony and cre­ate a play­ful in­ter­play of light and shadow Ar. Goon­meet Singh Chauhan Ar. Anand Sharma Ar.
