PROJECT DETAILS

HTAU was appointed by Landcraft Developers to demonstrate an alternative innovative approach
to affordable housing in UP using norms of the Samajwadi Aawas Yojna, a government led scheme for affordable housing.

The project explored densities as high as 450 dwelling units / ha with housing typologies that ensured dual frontage to each apartment to enable natural ventilation and access to natural light.  The Masterplan worked around creating perimeter block clusters that ensured active streets while providing privacy to the common central greens. A built-up-area of 79,000 sq.m of residential use and 2,500 sq.m of educational and convenience shopping was planned on the 3.2 hectare site. 115 1-bed units, 395 2-bed units, 285 2-plus-1- bed units and 340 3-bed units were planned along with a primary school, two nursery schools, one anganwadi (creche and day care) and convenience shopping.
