KANTHARA – VILLA COMMUNITY
Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu
Arvindh and Praveena Sabapathy
Kantara is in the vicinity of the Coimbatore to Ooty highway near the GN mills intersection. A neighbourhood of 9 villas for phase 1, having a central park with children’s play among others mixed uses. The client required villas with varied sizes and practical comfort for their client.
Multi-sized villas, starting from 3500 to 4500 sq. ft. were planned on large frontage plots. The plans with large volume free ﬂowing spaces, ample daylight & breeze is a take-off on the bungalow form with extended outdoor living through patios and decks.
The architecture is stylized in a contemporary way with delicately crafted details and earthy materials softening straight-line masses to a palatable global local ﬂavor. This community is distinguished by the personalized facades reﬂecting individual home-owner tastes with customized cladding and colour palette.
I have been working with AEQ for over 2 years on my villa community project. What impressed me most is their sense of ownership. When I work with them I get the feeling that they are just as much invested the success of the project as I am. It is this attitude combined with their creativity and competence that makes it a true pleasure to work with them.
