Gated Community

A Gated Community is a residential housing property, with a controlled and protected environment. It is built and developed to resemble a small township or neighbourhood, and is becoming an extremely popular option, among Bangalore property buyers. In the last few years, multiple builders have begun presenting Gated Communities.

Gated Community Plots are vastly different from traditional neighbourhood colonies and the apartment complex, Private Gated Communities presents you and your family with more than just a conventional home. A life within an estate such as this, promises a change in lifestyle for the better. Giving you not only a superior quality housing property but also access to a wide array of world-class health and wellness amenities.

With the assurance of top quality, round the clock security system and protection from pollution and noise from the outside, the Gated community experience also pledges to keep your home environment calm, peaceful and safe. Unlike compressed housing complexes, you are guaranteed more private and exclusive access to facilities such as a swimming pool, gymnasium, club house, game court and much more.

Another important aspect of Gated Communities are the lush and green environments in which they are built around and properly maintained. Extensive landscaping and grooming is done all over the estate to ensure it looks clean and green throughout the year.

Gated Communities are often stationed at strategic locations, never far away from the city’s central. Therefore basic amenities are easily accessible. Schools, shopping complexes and hospitals are often found functioning within the community.There is no dearth of benefits when living inside an establishment of this nature. Ensure your families happiness and well-being by picking a project most suited for you.

Another attraction is the gymnasium and health clubs. These spaces allow you to keep your body and mind, healthy and sound. Practice yoga, meditation and other such rejuvenating activities inside a clean and peaceful environment. It is important that such spaces offer superior quality equipment and are good well maintained. Requirements such as these are available within Gated Communities.

Private Gated Communities are known to provide all the above mentioned facilities and more. Apart from a clean environment and a peaceful setting, the number of amenities made available are sure to make a positive improvement to your quality of life

Apart from an effective security system and an easily accessible maintenance team, there are multiple other facilities available within Gated Communities. A feature that is often most desirable is a large, clean and tempting swimming pool. Pool facilities will usually include shower rooms, life guards, maintenance and up keep.

A young family with three children asked us to design a house that would fulfill their dreams: a paradox of a house that is simple yet surprising, open yet specific, minimal yet luxurious.

A house designed for the hectic life of an evolving family; fragmented yet united, plural yet whole.

Set in big clearing in the forested residential area in the center of the Netherlands, the site is both secluded and perfectly oriented towards the sun. The clients insisted on a very high level of sustainability. For this we worked very closely with world renowned sustainability pioneer Thomas Rau. Together, we set out to resolve the apparent contradictions of the clients’ wishes with a sustainable design for a house that is based on a radical differentiation of spatial experiences. Every floor has its own strong identity, creating a broad spatial spectrum within a unified whole. Three clear levels, with three very different characters and functionalities as a basis for family life to emerge.

Family Life

The ground floor level is for living: a generously open ground floor. A strip of serving rooms containing storage, toilets and stairs, provides easily access to the luxuriously open living spaces. The kitchen and living room are oriented maximally to the sun and view. In close relation to this living area there are two studies flooded with northern light, located on next to the entrance.

Village of Cabins

The collection of rooms on the first floor provides space for sleeping and privacy. Set in a delicate roof garden, all the bedrooms are like little cabins, crafted in their entirety from dark wood. They work like a small village, providing intimacy and privacy while also creating a large shared common space in between the cabins. Every room is like a world of its own with private views over the wooded landscape.

Wellness and Retreat

The curved and spacious basement is for guests, wellness and storage. The excavations allow the pool and the guest rooms to have fully glazed facades and direct access to the garden.

Smart sustainability

Despite it’s size and it’s extensive use of glass, the design is optimised for low energy usage. Together with Thomas Rau, we designed the house to optimise it’s passive sunshading and incorporate innovative sustainable measures. These include hot and cold-water storage, extensive use of PV cells and a grey water system. The basement contains a dedicated area for the high-end energy saving installations.
