Location: Adyar, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
Located at Gandhi Nagar, Adyar in Chennai, the erstwhile neighborhood of judges, civil servants, movie stars and industrialists the Project was a Joint Venture and stepping stone for the developer. The character of the majestic independent bungalow was to be retained. The facade of an independent house was the feature of the multiple dwelling units. The access to his 2-level apartment was ramped up with a car porch having an imposing double ceiling height. The accesses to the remaining apartments were from the stilt car parking level at the rear. Independent terraces were offered to the apartments facing the road, with the floor lobbies on each floor demarcating the other wing of the building that housed the remaining flats. The concept of this building has since been adapted in subsequent joint venture developments where the land owner has attempted to retain the original flavor of the old Madras and its independent bungalows.
