The House of Hiranandani (HOH) has always believed in offering its home buyers a complete living experience where architectural landscapes play a crucial role along with other amenities. The company has been hiring professionals of international repute like CPG Corp of Singapore to create world class exteriors and landscapes for its integrated communities across various projects. Landscape is an essential part of the environment. Landscape, which includes topography, vegetation and associated plants and soil, water bodies, and their spatial configuration, is one of the most visual needs of people. Therefore, the elements of a housing landscape are important in order to support the need of a community to have a better living environment in their residential area.
Landscape architecture is the design of outdoor public areas, landmarks and structures to achieve environmental, social-behavioral or aesthetic outcomes. It involves the systematic investigation of existing social, ecological and soil conditions and processes in the landscape, and the design of interventions that produce the desired outcome.
Landscapes along with other amenities, have taken an additional importance because they are not just well provided amenities, but these together are interaction between nature and human senses. It creates sense of belongingness to the community with its distinct natural and cultural identity. It has been proven that proper landscape planning and design with the sustainability concept and approach help to create a conducive and responsive environment of housing development. The aggregate effect of landscape design can influence social, aesthetic and environmental qualities of the overall housing areas.
Led by the vision of its founder Mr. Surendra Hiranandani, HOH think-tank is of the view that landscape services as a bridge between landscape ecology and sustainable development. It is a process that requires considerable planning and consultation and calls for detailing of an array of elements such as the climate of the region, topography, existing eco-system, history, culture and social context. Further considerations include the area covered, kind of plants depending upon the weather patterns of the region and how different shades and flowering trees can work together and so on.
As our lives get more urbanized and mechanized, we cannot overlook the feelgood vibes that nature offers to human beings. We can never live down that feeling of exhilaration, walking bare foot on grass wet with fresh dew or smelling a blooming rose. Plants are a part of our greener approach to life.
Leaves absorb dust and pollutants, shaded areas cut temperature as much as ten degrees, trees absorbs copious amount of carbon dioxide and supposedly, one tree releases enough oxygen each day that can supply a family of four. Finally, a good landscaping design gives the feeling that we are amongst nature. It is an attempt to make our living more holistic thereby giving us the maximum benefit.
Another element of landscape architecture is the streetscape that includes paving, street, street furnishings, lighting, parking and pedestrian spaces with appropriate canopy, and round abouts. Signage is essential to navigate these large spaces with accompanying maps and directories. It is not sufficient to just add interesting elements to the landscape, but meaningful landscape architecture involves installation of it in a way that can enhance our enjoyment of it.
At HOH, we believe that landscape along with other exterior amenities can be as productive as we make them. Sustainable and productive landscapes don’t just happen. When we plan use of unique plants, grows edibles, provide cooling shade and sculpt to route rain water through them rather than just running them off, we are being sustainable consciously.
