Rohan Madhuban : Diligently Designed Homes at Bavdhan

The layout of Rohan Madhuban Phase II is designed to seamlessly fit in its context. The existing contours of the land are preserved by using the site topography to plan elevated pedestrian pathways. Each home opens out to splendid views of the surrounding hills.

Rohan Madhuban II offers two apartment types – the 2BHK and the 3BHK. Both types are designed with a keen attention to detail, ensuring that each home provides nothing but the best in terms of space and quality.

The trademark Rohan PLUS concept is the core element of every Rohan home. Homes in Rohan Madhuban Phase II are designed with a special focus on these key elements, ensuring that every home is a perfect mix of all the important factors.

As with every Rohan project, Madhuban II has a host of amenities to cater to the various needs of its residents. In order to promote the idea of community living, there are a variety of activity spaces and communal gardens which residents can use for rejuvenation. In addition to a pool, gymnasium, badminton court and play areas for children, an indoor community center with a variety of indoor games is also part of the package.

With their well designed homes with a wide range of amenities, Rohan Madhuban II promises to offer its residents a capacious, well-designed slice of space to call their own.

Rohan Madhuban II, Bawdhan – ‘Pluses’ aplenty

Since its formation in 1993, Rohan Builders have emerged as among the most prominent developers in the real estate markets of Pune and Bangalore, with a huge variety of projects, which includes luxurious villas and vast apartment complexes. A common thread binding all of their constructions is their focus on the design and engineering of a home. This aspect is clearly visible when one looks at their upcoming project, Rohan Madhuban II, located in Bawdhan in western Pune.

Rohan’s earlier foray in this area was the neighbouring Rohan Madhuban, consisting of well-appointed 3 BHK and 4 BHK luxury villas. Since then, Bawdhan has seen ever-increasing housing demand, driven largely by its neighbouring IT and industrial hubs. Madhuban II targets people employed in these hubs, promising them Rohan’s quality engineering and value for money. We look at certain aspects of the project in this article.

Location & Connectivity

Among the biggest positives of Rohan Madhuban II is its location, among the green hills of Bawdhan, providing a great climate for residents of the complex, apart from excellent views of the surroundings. The site is 1.5 km off Paud Road from the major road intersection of Chandani Chowk, which apart from Paud Road is also a junction to NH4, Pashan Road and NDA Road. Connectivity to various parts of Pune city and the destinations of Lonavala, Mahabaleshwar, Kolhapur and Mumbai is very good.

In addition, the major IT hub of Hinjewadi is around 15-16 km away, while another emerging hub Baner is around 12 km away. The industrial hubs of Pirangut (11 km) and Pimpri-Chinchwad (20 km) can also be reached conveniently by road. Pune Railway Station is 12.5 km away from Rohan Madhuban II, while Pune Airport is around 20 km from the site.

Social Conveniences

Residents of Rohan Madhuban II can benefit from the infrastructure in Bawdhan, as well as the neighbouring areas of Kothrud, Pashan and Baner. Schools such as Periwinkle English Medium School (State Board, 3 km), Suryadatta School (CBSE, 3.5 km) and Ryan International School (ICSE, 2.5 km) are quality educational institutions. For higher education, there are big names such as Savitribai Phule Pune University (11 km), Flame University (15 km) and Symbiosis International University (17 km).

Options for medical care include Lodha Hospital, Om Hospital and Chellaram Diabetes Institute in Bawdhan or Sahyadri Hospital and Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital in Kothrud. Malls such as Aditya Shagun Mall and Abhiruchi Mall can be reached easily from the project site as well.

Project Overview

Rohan Madhuban II is to come up on a 3 acre land parcel and will comprise of 5 residential towers, built around a central landscaped area, housing various amenities and open areas to facilitate greater social interactions among residents. Each of the towers will have 14 residential levels, built above 2 levels of parking, with one parking slot being provided per apartment.

The complex will have separate entrances for vehicles and pedestrians. The vehicles will only be allowed on a road, skirting the complex, leading to and from the parking. A separate area will be provided for visitors’ parking.

The podium level will include a clubhouse, gymnasium, swimming and kids’ pool and landscaped gardens. In addition, stepped gardens will be provided. The clubhouse comes with facilities for various indoor games and also is planned to include 2 guest rooms.

Read more about the project on the developer’s website.

Apartment Overview

Each of the 14 level towers have six apartments per level. All apartments are of 2 BHK and 3 BHK configuration. The saleable area of a 2 BHK apartment is 1030 – 1157 sq. ft., while that for a 3 BHK apartment is 1288 – 1408 sq. ft. All apartments on the podium level come with a private garden. As the project is located in Bawdhan, home prices are a lot more affordable than in neighbouring Kothrud, Pashan and Baner, with a base price of Rs. 5200 – 5400/ sq. ft. Rohan Builders has set a possession date of December 2019 for all buildings.

Rohan prides themselves on being engineers first and the design of Madhuban II, done in collaboration with Salad Dressing of Singapore, bears this out. Rohan follows a design philosophy of a PLUS home (Perfect Ventilation, Lively Light, Utmost Privacy and Smart Space) and the same can be seen in Madhuban II.

Apartments will be open from 3 sides, allowing residents to receive natural air and light in their home. This, combined with the elevated location of the project and the usage of double heighted balconies, ensures that the temperature here will be significantly more pleasant than the neighbourhood.

At the same time, this ‘openness’ does not extend to residents’ privacy, both within and outside their home. There will be spacing of 110 feet between any two buildings. No doors of two apartments on the same level will be either adjacent to or be facing each other, ensuring no eavesdropping. Within a home, the guest bedroom will be segregated from the main bedrooms to ensure privacy within.

Homes in Madhuban II are designed to give residents more liveable space. The homes have fewer internal walls and no passageways. The combined living and dining room next to an open plan kitchen is a manifestation of the same. Even the bedroom layout allows for freedom of movement, storage and any other activities comfortably.

The project is designed to be resistant to earthquakes or other seismic shocks. Each home will be provided a video door phone and intercom facility, while the entrance and common areas will be covered by CCTV round the clock.

Conclusion

Rohan Builders’ design ethos has emerged from its focus on the things that matter most to customers and Madhuban II reflects how the same has been incorporated to create a community-like feel, while at the same time, maintaining residents’ privacy. For home buyers looking for value for money in Bawdhan with a timeframe of 3 years to move into their home, Rohan Madhuban II is an option worth considering.

Bavdhan Property Market – Living Among The Hills

The city of Pune in Maharashtra is renowned for being one of India’s biggest Information Technology (IT) bastions. Prior to the IT revolution, however, the city’s main claim to fame was its salubrious, pleasant climate and its greenery, which gave residents the feel of living in a hill station and attracted many people to settle here, hence its nickname of being a ‘Pensioner’s Paradise’. Unfortunately, many of these positives have either disappeared or greatly reduced with increasing urbanization and population pressure.

However, Pune still has some sizeable residential pockets which retain the old greenery and charm. Bavdhan in western Pune is one such area, which has come into its own as a major residential area in the last 7-8 years in particular. The major drivers of this growth, in addition to the lovely green surroundings, are the rise of nearby Hinjewadi as a major IT hub, the Commonwealth Youth Games, held in neighbouring Balewadi in 2008 and more recently, the Smart Cities project. Let’s analyze all the factors that make Bavdhan a much sought-after destination.

Location

Pune’s Chandani Chowk may not be as well-known as its Delhi namesake, but is nonetheless a major city landmark, located at the junction of four major roads, NH4, Pashan Road, Paud Road and NDA Road. Bavdhan is located right next to Chandani Chowk, with most residential developments in the area coming up along NH4 and Paud Road. With NH4 providing direct connectivity to Mumbai, Satara and Kolhapur, many people from these cities have chosen to invest in a second home in Bavdhan.

The major IT hub of Hinjewadi (13 km away), along with the smaller hub of Baner (9 km away) are home to some of the world’s leading IT product and service companies such as TCS, Cisco, Infosys etc. and techies working in these hubs form the bulk of housing demand in Bavdhan. In fact, Oracle Financial Services has its software center in Bavdhan itself. Another advantage that Bavdhan has is its proximity to the industrial and manufacturing hubs of Kothrud (3 km) and Pirangut (13 km), which makes it a preferred location for executives working in companies in these areas.

Connectivity

The Commonwealth Youth Games of 2008 saw a flurry of road building activity and investments in infrastructure in Bavdhan and surrounding areas, for which it has continued to reap the rewards ever since. All three major roads NH4, Paud Road and Pashan Road have been widened and large sections have been concretized as well. Internal roads too have improved, particularly in the city facing side of Bavdhan from NH4. However, last mile connectivity to housing complexes remains a problem in this area, particularly in the hilly portion of Bavdhan. Here, the roads are often narrow and have major potholes and bumps, which unfortunately, has been a bane in most areas in Pune city.

Public transport buses connect Bavdhan to Kothrud, Pashan and Pune Railway Station (13.5 km away), but the frequency is slightly less and with the last mile connectivity issues in the area, most residents prefer to use private vehicles. Shivajinagar, a major bus and railway hub, is 12 km away, while Pune Airport is 19 km from Bavdhan at the opposite end of the city.

Social Amenities and Conveniences

Bavdhan has attracted many people to settle here, which in turn, has also brought in numerous noted service providers. Schools such as Periwinkle English Medium School (Maharashtra State Board), Suryadatta School (CBSE) and Ryan International School (ICSE) are all noted educational educations located in Bavdhan itself. Additionally, in the neighbouring areas of Kothrud and Pashan are other good options such as MIT School, St. Joseph’s School and Sahyadri International School (all affiliated to Maharashtra State Board). When it comes to higher education, big names such as University of Pune (8 km), Flame University (8 km) and Symbiosis International University (11 km) are all within close proximity of Bavdhan.

When it comes to medical care, residents can choose from Lodha Hospital, Om Hospital or Chellaram Diabetes Institute in Bavdhan or even Sahyadri Hospital in Kothrud (3 km away). Bavdhan, particularly, the Chandani Chowk area, is home to many good restaurants and resorts such as Ambrosia, Banjara Hills and Garden Court. Bavdhan is home to the Aditya Shagun Mall, while there are plenty of shopping centers in Bavdhan and nearby Kothrud, Pashan and Baner areas to meet residents’ daily needs.

Resident Profile

As one drives down NH4, Bavdhan comes between the areas of Baner and Kothrud and the general residential profile of Bavdhan also lies between the higher end Baner and the predominantly middle class Kothrud. Bavdhan largely attracts the upper middle class segment of home buyers. The sheer variety of accommodation options available in Bavdhan is staggering, ranging from 2, 2.5 and 3 BHK apartments to luxury 5 BHK villas.

A major category of home buyers in Bavdhan are outstation investors, who look at this area as a vacation home or a good investment opportunity. This is proven by the doubling in base rates of apartment complexes, from an average of around Rs. 3400 / sq. ft.  in 2009 to around Rs. 6800 / sq. ft. today. The same, however, cannot be said of rental values, which have shown a smaller increase from an average of Rs. 11 / sq. ft. in 2008 to Rs. 15 / sq. ft. today.

Green surroundings

The USP of Bavdhan is unquestionably its location among green hills, which gives residents the feeling of being on a vacation while they are at home. Not only do they get great views of the city and surrounding hills, they also can live in a cleaner and pollution free environment as compared to inner city areas. For nature lovers or photographers, Bavdhan has a lot to offer.

Unfortunately, too much development is probably more a curse than a blessing. A major reason for loss of green cover in Pune is that the town planning approach followed here has been horizontal, rather than vertical. With a number of projects coming up on the Bavdhan hills, the green cover is gradually coming down and is robbing the place of its beauty and charm. In this regard, Bavdhan may, in years to come, suffer the same fate as many other green lungs of the city, such as Parvati, Pashan etc. It will be the responsibility of both residents and developers to maintain the greenery by taking appropriate proactive measures.

Base camp for a holiday getaway

If one is bitten by the travel bug, a home in Bavdhan serves as a perfect base camp. For a nearby picnic, one can choose from among Pashan Lake or Manas Lake in Bhugaon. For a day long getaway, one is spoiled for choice with options ranging from Lavasa, Tamhini Shat, Panshet Lake to Lonavala and Khandala. The prestigious National Defence Academy (NDA) is also next door. The best part is that all these places are directly connected by road to Bavdhan and one need not pass the heavy city traffic enroute.

Upcoming residential projects in Bavdhan

Moving in the hilly area of Bavdhan towards Pirangut and off Paud Road, one comes across Kolte Patil’s Stargaze project. A large, 18 acre project, providing excellent views of the city and the hills, Stargaze has 2 and 3 BHK apartments, with 4 BHK apartments planned in the near future. With planned amenities including terraced gardens, skating rink, miniature golf course and even a rock climbing wall, Stargaze aims to truly ‘activate’ residents’ life.

Moving towards Chandani Chowk and after taking a short detour from Paud Road, one reaches the stunning Gera Builders’ Isle Royale project. From the massive entrance gates to the large clubhouse and the lovely multilevel swimming pool area, the ambition behind the project is clear. Catering to the upper crest, Isle Royale will have 3.5 and 5.5 BHK villas (largely complete) and three residential towers (coming up), comprising of 3.5 and 4.5 BHK apartments, with amenities such as wooden flooring in all bedrooms, private Jacuzzi and top quality bathroom fittings and walk-in closets, among others.

Site photograph of Gera Isle Royale project in Bavdhan

Cross Chandani Chowk and NH4 and one reaches Rohan Builders’ Rohan Ishan project. Consisting of 2 and 3 BHK apartments, the homes here are built according to Rohan’s PLUS homes concept, allowing for effective lighting and ventilation, while maintaining residents’ privacy. Residents will be provided piped LPG connection and generator backup in common areas, apart from amenities such as a clubhouse, gymnasium and home security system.

Located close by is Goel Ganga Group’s Ganga Legend project. This project has 1, 2 and 3 BHK homes, with features such as laminated wooden flooring in master bedrooms, glass railings in terraces and usage of Dado tiles in kitchens and bathrooms. Amenities provided to residents include a skywalk for walkers and joggers, a party lounge, amphitheatre and multipurpose court for outdoor sports.

Conclusion

Bavdhan can be said to have emerged as a key residential destination in the western side of Pune, offering an excellent work-life balance to residents and providing them a clean and green living environment. With apartments catering to all categories of home buyers and all budgets, Bavdhan offers a truly cosmopolitan living experience. With better infrastructure and connectivity, things are likely to improve further. However, the impact of excessive development on the environment is and will remain a concern going forward.

Baner – A residential destination in western Pune that promises and delivers in equal measure

If one is to chronicle the history of Baner in western Pune, it would probably be divided in two periods: pre-2006 and post-2006. Till a decade ago, Baner was a small village located amidst green hills near the Mumbai-Bangalore highway NH4. Today, Baner boasts of numerous residential and commercial complexes, with more coming up every other day. In this article, we examine the reasons for this rapid rise of Baner.

Location & Connectivity

The rise of Hinjewadi as a leading IT hub with all IT majors such as TCS, Infosys and Cognizant setting up shop here, led to huge demand for housing in nearby areas, causing Pune city to expanding towards this hub. Areas such as Pashan, Kothrud and Aundh were the initial beneficiaries. However, with saturation and skyrocketing prices in those areas, developers were drawn towards Baner, owing to its low land prices, vast land availability and location between the city and Hinjewadi.

Baner is an ideal location for techies working in the IT hubs of Hinjewadi, Senapati Bapat Road, Aundh and Baner itself, all within a 9 km radius. It is also convenient for people working in the manufacturing hubs of Pirangut, Chakan and PCMC for major firms such as Atlas Copco, Forbes Marshall and Tata Motors.

A commercial complex in Baner

Baner is located right on the Mumbai-Bangalore Highway and hence, suits people working in areas such as Navi Mumbai and Satara (both 115-120 km away). Road connectivity within Baner is very good and so is the connectivity to areas such as Shivajinagar, FC Road, University, Aundh and Pune Railway Station, with regular buses plying to and from these locations, all of which are within a 13-15 km radius of Baner. Pune Airport lies 19 km away.

However, reaching Pune’s eastern areas from Baner can be an issue as one needs to cross the entire city, making it a time consuming affair. The proposed Pune Ring Road project may help in this regard, once it becomes a reality.

Greenery and scenic views

What catches the attention of most home buyers in Baner is the amazing view they get of the numerous green hills which surround Baner. Baner’s greenery and its pollution free environment serves as its USP, as compared to other localities.

Education and healthcare facilities

Baner and its surrounding areas do not lag behind when it comes to providing quality school and college education. Schools such as Orchid School and Ecole Heritage School adhere to the CBSE curriculum, while Vibgyor School is affiliated to both CBSE and ICSE. Pune’s top higher educational institutions such as Symbiosis University, Pune University and Fergusson College are within 8-12 km of Baner. When it comes to healthcare, Baner has Lifepoint Multispeciality Hospital, apart from Shashwat Hospital and Medipoint Hospital in neighbouring Aundh.

Amenities for recreation, sports and shopping

Baner is where the popular Pancard Club and Symphony Club are located, providing avenues for socializing. Major malls and shopping complexes such as Westend Mall, High Street Balewadi, Big Bazar and D-Mart cater to residents’ needs. In addition, the Shri Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Balewadi possesses excellent stadia (used for numerous national and international sporting events) and training facilities for various sports.

Smart and comfortable homes

With techies accounting for a large part of the housing demand in Baner, most developers have come up with properties which suit this segment. These properties boast of best in class designs and amenities for comfortable and luxurious living. Of special note in this area are ‘smart’ homes, which use technology extensively to enable owners to control electrical appliances in their home and monitor any visitors.

Baner forms part of the area selected for the Pune Smart City project, which should see projects such as solar roof tops, more social spaces and e-governance centers come up shortly, further enhancing conveniences for residents.

Excellent return on investment

Investors, who have purchased property in Baner either for leasing or for reselling purposes, have greatly benefitted from the area’s development, which has seen average property prices double in the last six years (since 2010) alone. Homes in Baner also fetch significantly higher rentals, as compared to a few years back and also to neighbouring localities. Baner continues to offer bright prospects of significant returns in the future as well, with more and more developments taking place.

Upcoming residential projects in Baner

Baner has attracted most major developers and the quality of construction and scale of some of these upcoming projects is to be seen to be believed.

Kalpataru Jade Residences is one such high-end project, located right next to Pancard club. It boasts of spacious and luxurious 3 and 4 BHK homes, which open to great views of the hills right behind the complex. With vehicle-free green spaces provided within the complex, along with amenities like an infinity pool and barbeque area among others, it encapsulates the best of what Baner offers.

Almost next door to this property is Kolte-Patil’s 24K Sereno, which contains 2 and 3 BHK apartments. These ‘smart’ apartments boast of lighting control, quality flooring and various technology-enabled home safety features. Among its amenities, the standout ones include an organic farm, a floating clubhouse and a mood lounge equipped with Wi-Fi.

Following the success of Rohan Leher, Rohan Builders are coming up with Rohan Leher 2. These low rise 4-storey buildings may seem an oddity in Baner’s high rises, but are specifically targeted at NRI investors. They have followed a ‘villament’ concept in their 3 BHK apartments, which give residents the feel of living in a villa, while maintaining the coziness of an apartment. Also on the horizon is Rohan Leher 3, which will have 2 BHK apartments targeted at the middle income group.

Not to be outdone, the Goel-Ganga group is introducing Ganga Acropolis, which comprises of 2, 3 and 3.5 BHK apartments with landscaped terraces and Italian marble and laminated wooden flooring for the living room and bedrooms respectively. Residents are provided an apartment management system offering remote control of the entire apartment’s electrical appliances and lighting. With amenities like a rooftop skating rink and a private mini theatre, residents are likely to be pampered like never before.

Conclusion

Each of these upcoming properties highlight the factors that make Baner stand out in a crowded Pune realty market as a location for comfortable living, with all conveniences at residents’ doorstep. Baner’s promise is yet to be fully realized and it is this promise that continues to attract residents and investors alike from not just India, but across the globe.

Rohan Builders – Blending Engineering And Design

Rohan Builders, Iksha project visit April 2016

In India very few engineers tend to stick to their chosen stream of education at colleges and of these only a handful follow the passion to a greater extent.

Rohan Builders have established themselves as competent and sought-after developers in residential, commercial as well as industrial and infrastructure projects. Over the last 23 years, their strong engineering background has gone from strength to strength. Their projects are testament to the growth in their design skills as well.

We take a look at some attributes of Rohan Builders that make them not just innovative developers but also diverse, humane and award-winning developers.

PLUS Homes

PLUS Philosophy of Rohan Builders
PLUS Philosophy of Rohan Builders

Central to the innovative designs of Rohan’s residential projects is the PLUS concept. PLUS refers to – Perfect Ventilation, Lively Light, Utmost Privacy, Smart Space. This design approach has become the overarching theme and standard design concept of all Rohan Homes. So, a home at any of Rohan’s residential properties have wall-to-wall windows providing good cross ventilation and air flow. This also means better, natural lighting and reduced usage of electricity. One’s privacy is maintained with recessed balconies while the reduced passages and internal walls within units ensure more utilizable space and create a sense of openness.

Focus on design

Over the years, Rohan has increased their focus on the design elements of their constructions. This is evident from their use of colonnades and raised building heights. Rohan has implemented double and triple height colonnades which serve to create a sense of dynamism and provide views of open landscapes (Rohan Iksha in Bangalore is a good example of the same). Their apartment projects are coming up with typologies that consist of an interplay of projecting balconies, private terraces and windows.

Project Diversity

Clients like Mahindra, Indian Oil, Nestle, Pepsico, Daimler Chrysler and many others will testify to Rohan Builders’ engineering prowess in the various industrial projects they have executed for them. These projects have been across industries as varied as Oil & Chemical, Food & Beverage, Water & Waste Management and even Design & Build / Turnkey projects. Rohan have also been involved in building and maintaining highways such as the Balachour-Dasua Road, Punjab, Ropar-Phagwara Road, Ahmednagar Ashti Jamkhed Bhoom Pardi Road, Maharashtra and a few others as well as bridges like Ausa-Umarga-Khasagi road, Maharashtra and the Amritsar Bus Terminus, Punjab.

Rohan’s commitment to excellence in design and engineering, and delivering quality projects has resulted in CRISIL awarding them the prestigious DA2+ rating consistently for the last seven years for real estate development. Rohan Builders have also been awarded prestigious awards like Eco Housing Provisional Certification for 5 star rating to Rohan Mithila, Silicon India : Pune Real Estate Award – 2015, CRISIL Seven Star Rating for Rohan Mithila & Rohan Leher.

CSR

Having created beautiful homes and sturdy structures, Rohan Builders is giving back to society through various initiatives. They have tied up with Door Step School (Pune) and Jagriti (Pune) to provide education to the children at the construction site and help the children get admission to corporation schools. They provide periodic health checkups for the construction labour and his/her family, organise blood donation camps and seminars for the women at the real estate sites regarding personal hygiene and providing sanitary napkin supply. Rohan also ensures all mandatory safety protocols are followed on site and are deeply committed to safety of workers by integrating their safety procedures with those of their clients’. The new mandate is to focus on health hygiene, education for kids, nutrition for kids, recreation, and economic empowerment of women.

Located off the Mumbai Bangalore Highway at Baner, Mohan Nagar in Pune, what in my perspective defines this suburb is its wide roads, commercial complexes and prominent outlets on either sides. These all are fronting uptown residential spaces in their backdrop. Intersecting the Sus Road Highway, Baner not only provides an easy connectivity to Pimpri-Chinchwad but is in vicinity to areas such as Balewadi (a 10 minute drive), Aundh (about 15 minutes), Shivajinagar (in less than 30 minutes) and other key places as well. Rohan Leher 2 is in close proximity to central Pune city, whilst Pimpri Railway Station and Pune International Airport are at a distance of mere 13.7 and 22 km respectively. Also, Hinjewadi IT hub, schools such as Kidzee & Dolphin English Medium School (0.5 & 3.2 km), hospitals like Datar Hospital & Kilbil Children’s Clinic (0.7 & 2.1 km) and markets such as Suyash Mall & Orchid Society (2.2 km) all lie within a 5 km radius (more on West Pune).

Project highlights

Illustrated- Rohan Group’s ‘PLUS’ Homes Concept- Rohan Leher 2
  • A very meticulously developed project, Leher 2 is spread on 3.5 acres and offers 3 BHK apartments and penthouses. All living spaces here provide spacious rooms and wide balconies to residents. Just as any other project by the developer, Rohan Leher 2 also has the peculiarity of combining aesthetics with design. Every home is created with the beauty of a villa along with the cosiness of apartment and hence aptly named ‘Villament’.
  • A customary notion in designing every Rohan home what they call the plus home, stands for Perfect ventilation, Lively light, Utmost privacy and Smart space. The project is established with a mix of low-rise apartments, garden apartments, duplexes and penthouses located amidst the posh settings of Baner. Wide windows with bronze-aluminium shutters bounded in all-embracing pergola casings and bright white walls of the project distinguish it from the otherwise usual background.
  • Duplexes and penthouses aside, every apartment is positioned on a split level, so each unit has its own unique space. What appealed to me is the design that included rounded edges on the interior walls, open-planed kitchen lying in central portion of the house which offers an accessible approach to rooms indoors, providing a lovely view on either sides. Wide and favourably located vents help ensure that every unit is teeming with fresh breeze and natural light.
