Close to the Hi-tech city in Hyderabad, nestled between rocks is the site of Krinss villa development spread over 15 acres. The landscape concept is to make a pedestrian complex giving major importance to walking spaces so even the roads are designed as being pedestrian friendly. The landscape of the front gardens extends on to the road giving a seamless feel from house to house.
There are 5 to 6 villas on each side of the East-West lanes & 7 to 14 villas on North-South lanes.
The gate house is set back in by 4 to 5 meters to create an entrance square. On the front road along the entrance lies the Club House with facilities such as a tennis court, cricket practice area and a swimming pool located at the upper level.
The pathway network forms a complete loop covering the entire property as a jogging/ cycle track, running along the jagged profile of the back walls of the villas, making small sit-outs encouraging social interaction.
One large green space towards the south is designed with varying textured & coloured foliage with a seating pergola & badminton courts. Small open spaces around road corners are utilized as tot lots.
