This project features 70 villas and a club house, 12 of which are larger in size of 7500 ft2 and the rest have a smaller footprint of 6000 ft2. It was a unique site and the gradient of the site was over 20m. The master planning was done taking into consideration that each villa gets a clear and unique view of the green valley.
An energy-passive architectural method is utilized to reduce the heat gaining and humidity in the tropical area. Generous open spaces are carefully designed to promote air movement within and across the building. Larger horizontal roof and terraces provide a strong balance of shadow.
