Merton Banks is designed as a small gated community in Madayathur Village off Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) near Thiruporur. The approach to the Site is through a dirt road flanked on one side by the Madayathur Lake, famous for birding and the other side by a Forest.

The gated community at this location serves more as a holiday retreat for the Owners away from the city’s flurry. The Scheme was to prepare a layout for 50 plots of 4800 Sq.ft each where duplex houses of approx. 2000 sq.ft. area will be built. A club house with minimal facilities like indoor games area, bar, a small dining area, swimming pool, tennis courts and badminton court were to be provided.

The layout was prepared to give maximum privacy to each house and also the entry to each plot is kept away from the main arterial road. Material selection intended for this Project is proposed to create green architecture. The layout of the individual house allows for adequate light and cross ventilation. The 3 R’s – reduce, reuse and recycle are proposed for this Project for internal and external services.
