A destination rooted in nature
You don’t question the design of a tree or the plan of a forest. By shaping the new destination around existing trees, we place nature’s beauty and its legacy at the heart of the new urban destination.
Through the preservation of the ancient trees, the new development will literally be rooted in the history and ecology of the site. This will offer a sense of place and quality of experience far beyond the architecture alone.
We believe this is the key to creating a place where people will love to work, live and play, a destination you would want to visit and return to, again and again.
Building an urban ecology
Vaishnavi Virirdian already serves as a small natural habitat. Plants, small animals and micro-organisms inhabit the site today collecting solar energy, water and recycling nutrients.
Through the retention of the trees and their soil, this little ecosystem can be preserved and developed along with the new buildings and infrastructure for people and commerce.
We propose a strategy to further develop the ecosystem with careful integration of water cycles and increased biodiversity alongside the construction of spaces for people and commercial programmes.
People centered design
Green urban space is closely related to well being and health for urban dwellers.
Plants are the “air conditioners” of nature. They filter the air converting carbon dioxide into oxygen and airborne toxins into nutrients.
Trees and plants provide shade and create a microclimate that preserves water and moisture and helps cool their surroundings. Plants and green spaces in all scales are known to reduce stress and increase mental health and wellbeing.
The Vaishnavi Viridian project offers a chance to explore in full the value of green spaces for working, living and recreation.
The Next Iconic Urban Space
With the Hanging Gardens we wish to revisit the concept of a public garden, as an open multifunctional space where multiple users can coexist, meet, work, live and play.
The garden offers an iconic green setting for retail, food and beverages, sports, entertainment as well as for working and living spaces.
A place that is natural, beautiful, healthy, and pleasant to stay in, and a place that you would like to revisit.
Hanging Gardens Of Bengaluru
Bengaluru, once known as “the garden city of India”, has a proud history of public parks, lakes and green urban spaces.
Vaishnavi Viridian is blessed with preserved nature and existing vegetation and has the potential to reconnect the high-speed urbanism with the history of the city as well as with nature itself.
Vaishnavi Viridian should be a model project and global benchmark for nature-integrated development in which the ancient trees themselves are at the center of the attraction.
