penda has shared the latest development for his magic breeze project in hyderabad / india with the proposal of a residential idea of a ‘house with a garden’ to complement the maze-like garden landscape. the 450,000 square foot development is composed of 127 units; designed as duplex sky villas with each unit divided from its neighbor by a double-height, private garden. these green ‘in-between spaces’ create a sense of openness and vitality to the compound and loosens up the density a tenant would experience in a common condominium building.

for the project, penda developed a modular planter system that would be installed as an extension for the balconies of each unit. each planter can be filled with different kinds and sizes of greenery and serve as a natural partition to the surroundings. this large area of urban gardening gives the tenants the opportunity to plant their own vegetables or herbs in their garden and gives the project a sense of a self-sustaining development. the balcony is designed as a grass-surface, which underlines the ‘private house with a garden’ typology.

the private gardens are not just an organic division to neighboring units, but also encourage natural ventilation
throughout the complex

 

 

 

additionally, the proposal was shaped by the rules of vaastu, which is a traditional hindu architectural system and describes layout, orientation or floorpan arrangements and the importance to create architecture in harmony with nature. the start of construction for the compound is set for fall of this year.
