A 4,50,000 Sq. Ft. project at Annur dedicated to the well being of the elderly.

Detailed analysis of lifestyles of the elderly society, their hardships and the challenges they faced, were undertaken. The design approach was to have a single storied independent living units connected through walkways, semi open areas, landscaped areas which maximize interaction. The idea was to maximize the feeling of community and neighborhood , between the like minded couples living at the facility. Meditation spaces, recreational spaces and dedicated medical facilities were integrated in the overall development.
