Func­tion­al­ity & sus­tain­abil­ity

Realty Plus - - Infrastructure -

The mass­ing de­sign was com­pletely as per the lo­ca­tion and place­ment of these ser­vices. The parts where we could cover some of these units were de­signed specif­i­cally such that it can be eas­ily opened and ser­viced. For ex­am­ple, a drain sys­tem that needed to be in­te­grated is de­sign such that a part ofthe unit is at­tached on hinges which can open up for ser­vic­ing, which helped us main­tain the ex­act de­sign and also main­tain ser­vice­abil­ity for the lo­cal au­thor­i­ties.

In terms of en­vi­ron­men­tal ob­jec­tives, it can help to al­le­vi­ate and re­duce air and noise pol­lu­tion, as there would be a re­duc­tion in the num­ber of ve­hi­cles park­ing on the street side. All trees around the site are main­tained and given new grat­ings of COR-TEN Steel to com­ple­ment the sur­round­ings. Ma­te­ri­als used were Steel fram­ing with MS sheet cov­er­ing since it is non­toxic to­wards the ex­ist­ing plants and trees. De­sign team: Ar­chi­tects Khushbu Davda & Seeja Sud­hakaran, Stu­dio Emer­gence ex­e­cu­tion: Green Turf Land­scapes
