Chennai Residential Complex

The ELA Residential Complex is located in the city of Chennai, in southeast India. The project consists of 1000 apartments and studios, the latter intended for students of a nearby university. The project also consists of a series of facilities that serve the residences, as well as vast green areas, which will join an urban park also planned by ABIBOO Architecture in the same plot, as per Indian law requirements. The site is located next to the main national highway connecting the two largest cities in Southern India (Chennai and Bangalore).

The project combines a number of independent blocks, articulated in two areas defined by the presence of an existing power line tower on the site, which becomes the structuring element of a large linear eco-park with innovative solutions for alternative energy resources. Spaces for social interaction are designed to maintain the relationship with the numerous green spaces provided in order to create a healthy living environment.

COMPLEJO RESIDENCIAL ‘ELA’, Chennai, India

El complejo residencial de ELA se encuentra localizado en la ciudad de Chennai, en el sureste de la India. El proyecto consta de 1000 apartamentos y estudios, estos últimos destinados a estudiantes de la universidad que se encuentra próxima al solar. El proyecto se completa con una serie de equipamientos que dan servicio a las viviendas, así como de amplias áreas verdes, las cuales se unirán a un parque urbano también proyectado por ABIBOO Architecture en la misma parcela según establecen las leyes de la India. El sitio está ubicado junto a la principal carretera nacional que conecta las dos mayores ciudades en el sur de la India, Chennai y Bangalore.

El proyecto combina una serie de bloques independientes, según su tipología residencial, que se articulan en dos áreas definidas por la presencia de una línea eléctrica que atraviesa actualmente la parcela. Dicha línea eléctrica se convierte en el elemento estructurador lineal de un gran ‘eco-parque’ que incorporará soluciones innovadoras para generación de energías alternativas acompañando a la torre eléctrica existente convertida en icono del mismo. Los espacios para la interacción social están diseñados para mantener la relación con los numerosos espacios verdes con el fin de crear un entorno de vida saludable.
