A unique axis that flows through various common open plots in this project is classified and identified through its wide range of variety in plantation. The lotus ponds, fountains and swimming pool contribute to landscape aesthetics which is well balanced with other elements as well whereas the common plantation along the boundaries help define the landscapes spaces from the road.
The axis consisting of four courts varying from each other in many ways based on the function and kind of plantation and geometry that is followed. The evergreen creepers with pergola spaces facing an open court terminating into a fountain space that is skirted with decks and seating areas on different levels creates a sense of solidarity
Informal landscape spaces have meandering curves with no defined boundary. A playground is placed in between the growing, sinuous mounds creating interesting visuals at every focal point. The clubhouse court uses a formal language with defined edges for ponds and pathways with an array of flowering plants cascading through the pavilions which makes the space vibrant throughout the year.
Interesting patterns of mosaic, radial geometry, varied contours with slopes and mounds surrounded by flowering shrubs constitute this harmonious landscape that frames and highlights the existing architectural character of the surrounding.
