Think Vertical, Go green - Pune, India

The vertical garden has been considered to have emerged in 3000 BCE in the Mediterranean area. Currently, with the increase in environmental awareness, architects are amalgamating greenery and using it as an accessory to provide a unique result in the elevation treatment.

The unique design of the twin towers is an attempt by Ingrain architects of "Creating the unexpected-Vertical Gardens", because there’s simply something very magical about seeing plants growing in a different direction. The idea was entirely focused on taking the advantages of the practical aspects of green living walls, which can embody the benefits of a low-rise house in a compact urban surrounding. Unlike traditional forms of architectural cladding materials, a screen of vegetation will create a suitable micro-climate, which will insulate or cool down buildings, filter fine particles contained in the urban environment and will also help with noise control. Provided are beautifully integrated amenities.

Integrated amenities in the building amalgamated with nature. 

The iconic twin towers are designed to create triple-height private garden spaces for each apartment, where each grand terrace is becoming the heart of the compact plan, connected visually to the adjacent spaces on both levels and the flat is full of light from generous glazing. The design offers traditional villa experience with living and dining area opening into a green front yard. Shown are the floor plans for a better understanding of the overall project.

Conceptual Presentation of the building interface

The idea of integrating the structural system with services shafts makes it a unique project in high-rise typology. The helical arrangement of a villa in the sky is a pragmatic solution to stringent local DCR.

The twin villa tower strongly focuses on the concept of vertical gardens, which is always about creating the unexpected.

Shown in this video is a beautiful conceptual representation of the project which is showing the development of the twin towers from its inception.
