Project Description

Hymns of Life, Kochi

Hymns of life was our first innovation in going vertical. In the past, most of our developments were low rise, and emphasized on the relationship to land, the importance of community spaces.At “Hymns” we have tried to recreate the same character, which has been transformed through what we call “sky gardens”, in each apartment. These are open green terraces which besides creating a bit of the outdoors even at the higher floors break the severity of the scale, making it more human.The design of the sky gardens minimize the heat and moisture on the lower floors, by virtue of protecting the walls below. The landscaped garden, acts as a buffer from the dust, heat and the lashing rain.
