Located at the foothills near Somatane Phata, this 5-acre gently sloping land is a perfect setting for the unique homes of Rohan Anand. Every home here has a connection to the landscape. You either look at the hill, or you look at the large central green landscape area in the middle of the project.
The multifunctionality of various spaces inside a home gets manifested in various ways. The larger living space can be converted to two separate rooms in the night using sliding partitions. The kitchen, which is active only during the daytime, can be used by a youngster as a sleeping or study space with a bunk bed like loft, having privacy yet the outside landscape view from that level. By moving the terrace to the side instead of in front, it can be used for sleeping, studying, washing, drying etc.
There are multiple interactive zones, designed with double and triple height spaces throughout the layout. These become semi-indoor play areas for table tennis, basketball, chess, carrom etc or for holding informal functions like birthday party, engagement functions, etc.

It is quite a dramatic site surrounded by rolling greens and has a hill as a backdrop, providing for amazing views all around. Through the design, we tried to exploit these panoramic views, and bring this outside green inside too.

Situated at the foothills near Somatane Phata, Rohan Anand avoids the pollution and congestion of the city. Yet, being just 1.5kms off Pune-Mumbai Expressway, it is well connected to Pune city as well as to the PCMC area. This rapidly developing area is situated within close proximity to reputed primary schools, colleges and hospitals.
There are a number of shopping areas within close proximity. In addition, the property is close to Prati Shirdi Temple, the Talegaon MIDC and Talawade IT Park, and just a 20min drive from Hinjewadi flyover.
We have planned spaces for all age groups. The primary vehicular movement is kept on the periphery. The central area is free from vehicles, making it safe for children to run around. There is a secondary movement happening through a walkway connecting all the blocks and creating pocket gardens below each block. These would have a lot of quieter areas with sitting places for toddlers and grandparents. Then there are more energetic spaces for little older children who just want to run around. There are places for college going kids as well as older people to hand around.
