The villa typologies fall into five types ranging from 4,000sqft to 7,300sqft, each containing the same design language and materials providing a consistency to the streetscape yet variety of form. Extensive use of glazing, terraces and sun-shading take advantage of the Bangalore climate. Open boundaries and visually connected gardens connect the clusters of villas and broaden the open spaces between the villas.
The villas are designed and planned within the vastu principles to avoid the entry via the South, avoiding locating kitchens in the North-East and avoiding placing the master bedrooms in the North-East, East or North. With this respect, the 5 different typologies of the villas fit within the different zones based on different conditions of the site.

The Clubhouse contains full leisure amenities to serve the villas and their guests. The clubhouse retains the same character and materials as the villas.
Site & landscape
Roads are designed to be wide, with wide paths and planting on the sides to add the lusciousness and to promote a cleaner and greener living within the community.
The clubhouse is designed as a mini-hotel, with the facilities of a 5 star luxury hotel. 14 guestrooms, restaurant, gym, business centre, event hall, convenience store, kid’s club and outdoor exercise facilities. To keep the simplicity of the design in this development, the elements around the clubhouse design retains the same material and detailing that had been used in the 5 different villa types.
Materials & language
The material language has intentionally remained simple, intending to express the forms of the buildings. The extensive use of the local Sira stone is extensively used in many parts of the landscape as an expression of applying a local material in a contemporary way.
