Villa at Jaypee Greens

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The villa has been based on the concept of Biophilic design since the very aim of the client is to come here for leisure and rejuvenation. Biophilic design emphasizes human adaptations to the natural world that over evolutionary time have proven instrumental in advancing people's health, fitness, and wellbeing. Hence the place needed to exude warmth & soothing serenity to all the senses. The emphasis has been on using wooden textures, natural stone finishes, plants, moss walls, green walls & water fountain to create an ambience closer to nature and its earthiness. Natural forms and motifs as artwork & lighting also play an important role in connecting to nature. . Also, some feature walls with hand painted natural scenery add a touch of bringing in nature close inside the house as it is not possible to use planters in abundance everywhere due to maintenance issues. The primary colours used are blue, green, turquoise, beige, orange, yellow as all these create a form of ecstasy & peace.
