ECR Resort

Project Details

Project Name   : Wellness Tourism Resort & Luxury Villas at Pattipulam
Location   : East Coast Road, Pattipulam, Chennai
Year Of Completion   : 2016
Area   : 36.24 Acres
Client   : ASV Dior Housing & Hospitality (P) Ltd.


The Client ASV Dior Housing proposed to come up with a Wellness Tourism Resort along with a gated community of luxury villas at Pattipulam. The intent of the Project was to have a discreet and environmentally intelligent architecture designed in the 36.24 acres property. The rear of the property abutted the Buckingham Canal. This proved useful for creating a water adventure sport activity.

A village road of about 1Km from ECR leads us to the Site. The first half of the Site was used for the Wellness Resort and the rear half was used for the gated community. Though the Village road bi-furcated the two, a proposal to build either an underground tunnel or an overhead walkway allowed for the people residing in the gated community to use the amenities of the resort.

The Resort has Contemporary buildings amid tropical plantations to provide an idyllic haven, pervading a sense of tranquility and luxurious relaxation. The Resort is pedestrian friendly and only electric vehicles will transport people around the Site. Solar power is harnessed and rainwater collection and reuse and maximum use of natural materials ensures that the master plan is not only energy efficient but also sustainable design principles are followed.

The gated community has two types of villas and they are set in rows. Each villa has the option of having a swimming pool within their plot. The sloped roof extends to provide protection from rain as well as summer heat. The plans are designed in such a way that optimum natural ventilation is provided. Long corridors abutting the pool deck/ landscaped courtyard create a dramatic walkway. The scheme offers privacy as well as gives rise to a luxury resort living.
