Innovation knows no constant.
Human habitats have evolved with civilization, led by needs for comfort, security, and livelihood.
Even several thousand years back, Romans and Harappans, Incas, and Persians used to live in scientifically designed and comfortable habitats, with sophisticated facilities such as running water, temperature control and hygienic sanitation. Aboriginal peoples, such as the Germanic, Native American, and African tribes too developed their own systems that worked with local ecology and occupational needs of the inhabitants.
In the modern world, however, we seem to have lost touch with these common sense systems where the pressures of commercial gain and human density have driven us to lose the balance between value and quality of life, delivering neither.
Edifice aims to restore this balance in human habitats by optimizing both efficiency and experience. Our habitat ecosystems are conceived to not just deliver terrific return on investment and long-term growth but also enrich the sheer joy of living in those spaces.
Efficiency to value
You get answers only by questioning everything.
A living space is a living, breathing, entity. It does not exist in isolation. It is connected with other such spaces around it, and through them, with the inhabitants, and their needs. The only way to create more value out of habitats is to increase their efficiency. We achieve this by digging deep into the needs of inhabitants, now and in the future.
By designing habitats that utilise synergies and integrate well with the community and the environment, we are literally able to pack more living in every cubic inch of space!
EXPERIENCE TO QUALITY OF LIFE
Your reality is only as good as you feel.
In the words of Kahlil Jibran, “Build of your imaginings a bower in the wilderness ere you build a house within the city walls.”
What is a living space? Is it just a cluster of rooms and corridors? Or is it a place where you wake up happy, and go to sleep peacefully? Where your dream and your reality come together to complement and enhance your living experience?
The negative pressures of human density, faulty habitat development, and urban mismanagement have led to a situation where basic human needs are being compromised. But that is not where we should stop. Innovation is neither expensive nor complex and there are many solutions that can integrate together to deliver a fulfilling and joyous living experience to all inhabitants, at little or no extra cost.
The sense of community, the balance of quiet and excitement, the avenues of self expression, the abundance of ‘me time’ have is priceless.
Achieving goals is infinitely harder than setting them.
How do we create new habitat ecosystems? By breaking accepted yet outdated norms, and reassembling habitat components to align with an evolving set of needs. Discover how our innovations give form to our vision.
A German designer’s fanatic pursuit of efficiency has created these truly spacious and high value homes, at a location that distances you from the chaos of city, yet connects you easily to its heart. Villa Valley features in-built urban farms in each villa that promises a lifetime resource of fresh, organic vegetables, with almost no effort from the residents. All rainwater is harvested and recycled water is reused to keep new water usage to the bare essentials, making this a highly sustainable, truly green community. The development features spacious social spaces that include a pool, gym, tennis court and a one of a kind musical bamboo corridor.
