Embassy Springs Row Houses & Villa

Bangalore, India

Two land parcels within Embassy Springs are to be developed by the master developer. Containing the typologies of row houses in one parcel and semi-detached and detached villas in the second parcel.

The row houses have been planned to restrict the vehicular access (to the houses) to the exterior of the parcel, thereby reducing the amount of road area and at the same time concentrating the open communal garden spaces into the centre of the parcel. Access to the open spaces is taken directly from the living spaces of each unit. The unit and plot sizes permit only a two storey unit and to improve the street presence and proportion, the form of the units has been accentuated to appear as a three storey unit. The open roof terrace occupies the roof terrace and makes use of the excellent Bangalore climate.

The semi-detached and detached villas are placed in a more pre-ordained streetscape and whilst the units are larger than the row houses, the same architectural technique has been applied to provide proportion and presence and utilize the available roof terrace.

It is envisaged that these parcels will be launched in 2016 and the design was still in development at the time of publication.
