The vision is to create a neighbourhood of a group of likeminded people who will take the idea of sustainability forward.The plan is to create a rich variety of spaces to complement the homes – open spaces, playgrounds, parks, sports facilities, spaces to encourage theatre and cultural activities, markets, maybe medical and childcare facilities. Home-based enterprises which share skills and enrich the neighbourhood are a path to realising the sustainable dream. The 50-acre township will be divided into primary, secondary and overall neighbourhood groups, the primary group being the intimate cluster of 12-16 homes, the secondary a larger group of 50 to 100 homes and the neighbourhood group being about 500-600 homes. The groups will be created according to the typology of the homes and the layout of the specific cluster.
Designed for the pedestrian and not the car, the plan creates pedestrian-only spaces connected through interesting pathways. Conveniences such as trolleys and electric vehicles to take care of carrying luggage and for the elderly to move around will be taken care of. Public spaces such as playgrounds, amphitheatres and rain-fed water bodies, will serve as platforms to transfer oral and visual traditions to the next generation are integrated into the planning. The plan evokes closeness to nature, and a more human scale, by building low rise and letting each individual have access to land, which he/she can take care of, feel and touch. The plan responds to the natural lay of the land, using the features on the land to enhance the spaces and conserve the natural elements.
