Ishatvam 9

Best Constructed Premium or Business Class Residential Estate

About the project
Situated in Ranchi, Ishatvam 9 is a residential building on a small plot of 1800 sqm. Most of this city has existed with low rise development. The last few years have witnessed rapid urbanization & in response to this the governing rules have been changed to allow 50m height & buildable area 3 times the plot size. Most of the city’s inhabitants have been used to living in individual houses with private gardens & open spaces. Therefore, the apartments in Ishatvam 9 have been designed to occupy a complete floor with each room extending into 20’ feet high, double height decks.
Temperatures in Ranchi vary from 31⁰C average in the summer months & 12⁰C in the winter months. The extended decks for each room shelter the internal spaces from the excessive heat in the summer while becoming landscaped outdoor extensions to the rooms.
The apartments are designed with minimal internal circulation spaces with a large living dining area located centrally from which all the rooms are accessed.
