T ZED, LEED Platinum Rated Residential Enclave that located in Bangalore, India, was designed by Space Matrix. The built spaces and mechanical systems have been customized to accommodate these features. Two precious resources – water and energy – have been conserved in every action, from washing a car, flushing a toilet, or using a microwave. Sky gardens with each home are expected to help sink carbon levels.
The entire T Zed Homes stretch is dotted by courts and plazas, and pergolas with benches which modify its micro-climate. The schema of dual existence speaks of a world within a world concept. The elements of the building, its scale, size, volume, degrees of enclosure, levels of illumination as well as texture instill in the observer an ethos appropriate to the place.
Being the rectangular elongated site it is, sufficient care has been taken in not just the placement of the clusters but also in the manner each one functions. The central spine converses aptly at each variant – it descends to the basement level between the apartments and emerges to the ground level leading to the individual plots. Amidst the apartments, it opens into the parking space located below each cluster and connects back to the ground level by virtue of the ramps and landscaped areas between these clusters.
