63 Acres Sub Urban Housing Society, Design and Planning
At a time when Karachi’s infrastructure needs an upgrade, Landscape PLC is playing its part and has taken up the architecture design and planning of a 63 Acre Sub Urban Housing Society.
The facility offers residences of difference sizes, the views showcasing that of 80 SQYD, 120 SQYD and 200 SQYD. These houses feature an ingenious use of space and light. The design of the structures take into account privacy, ventilation, aesthetics etc.
At the central spine of the society lay the community centre and mosque. These set their ethereal mark as combining architectural forces for the various units of the planned sub-urban area. The community centre is a luxury that has its ties with the skies. It has its wings sprouting from the land, making itself a focal point from all angles of vision. Concrete, steel and glass constitute the basic material palette. The recessed intersection defines the entrance of the structure also serving the purpose of common spaces. The aerially diagonal masses, on the other hand, house a variety of recreational indoor and outdoor spaces such as community halls, cafes, gaming zones, theatre, restaurants and more. In addition to providing an architectural landmark to the housing society, the exhibited public arena aims to encourage sociability amongst the dwellers.
