Most of us love everything custom-made these days, be it clothes, shoes or furniture. And now it’s time for custom homes. With a lot of Indians travelling to international destinations, be it for work or leisure, they are now getting increasingly aware of international trends, that extend to fashion, cuisines, lifestyles and homes. As a result, theme-based real estate development is gaining prominence amongst modern-day home-buyers.
This shift in consumer minds has in a way helped Indian real estate developers to make their project stand out from the rest. Here are a few distinct themes that are either becoming increasingly popular in India or are the country’s first:
A design ethos that blends nature and architecture, the Biophillic style creates living spaces that are invigorating, inspiring and comforting. Incorporating natural elements like flowing water, green roofs and airy open living spaces help residents reconnect with nature. The local hillside ecology and topography are researched to design a master plan that helps the structures merge effortlesssly with the environment. Myst is India’s first such biophilic residential development that blends contemporary design seamlessly with the unique ecology of the Kasauli Hills. The expansive mountain views, indigenous plants, clean air and cascading streams add a new dimension to luxury living.
Mediterranean-themed homes like La Montana in Pune have terrace layouts that give you a great sense of space, while you breathe in fresh air thanks to the lush landscapes around. Porticos, classic arches, cut-stone facades and terracota railings are the highlights of the buildings. Stone, red-roof tiles, wrought iron and stucco are some of the elements which bring life to the Mediterranean concept. You can stroll along the township’s walkways and pebbled garden paths or lawns, passing through the open plazas and courtyards. All of these combined are no less than a treat to your soul.
Spanish Lifestyle & Architecture
A style that revives the architectural trend of the early Spanish colonies, Santorini in Chennai offers distinctively conceptualised homes and intimate low-rise architecture. The exotic homes come with one-of-a-kind exclusive podium gardens, a lavish clubhouse with modern amenities and a vast expanse of green spaces. Truly, a lifestyle that is superlative and unparalleled!
Now here’s an invitation to holistic living with pre-certified green buildings that ensures cool air, with an increased ventilation of 30%, is funneled into homes with East-West orientation, providing ample light, while the south-facing sun-shading fins keeping the heat out. All of this is part of a master plan incorporating an interesting interplay of mid and high rise towers at Amantra, Mumbai that weaves in the elements of nature. There couldn’t be a better way than this to live green and eco-friendly.
