Its a lesson on the possibilities of infra projects if there is no political interference.

Another milestone achieved and now Bangalore inches closer to have its Metro after Delhi & Kolkata.

Hope the area is cleaned and beautified around and under the viaducts.

I personally have mixed feelings about the idea of a gated community.

But I wish they weren't Americanized in this instance (and in India in general). They should build houses incorporating traditional architectural styles. This is one way I think a city/community can keep its identity alive Otherwise, all houses/buildings start to become bland and boring.

I am not sure how it can be said ‘Americanized’. To me it appears as one among the various villa projects which I have come across in Bangalore and Kerala. The houses adopt the present Indian style of construction using brick/mortar and concrete unlike the construction practices in America. You can find similar, perhaps in smaller scale villa projects with those red tiled roofs in every nook and corner of Kerala.

Yes, of course, you can say that American connection is there since these villas doesn’t have ‘solid walls’ on the periphery.

BTW one of my relatives stay in another similar gated community from the same developer, ‘Adarsh Vista’, which is nearby my apartment complex.

Personal choices based on practicality. I prefer a gated community, where a stranger will not gain access easily.

The ‘architectural style’ is Indian only, not ultramodern or contemporary style. It is plain brick and mortar construction with Mangalore pattern tile over concrete roof.

The houses are not similar. They follow a pattern, that’s all. It means that there is no mix of the traditional sloping Mangalore roof tiled houses as well as the flat roof contemporary style. At Adrash Vista, the 188 villas are developed separately as per the plans of the client itself. There is no standard design, the architect will sit together with the client and discuss about the options possible in the plot, which would be more or less standard.

BTW better not to mess this ‘pictures’ thread with detailed discussions.

what do you want? Houses made of bamboos with dirt roads and a few cows roaming around? Those houses look quite Indian to me. I am not sure what your idea of an indian house.

I want something along the lines of what yagya has posted (without the dirt and cows of course). I only said what i said because Purapagal said it was an Americanized community. I admit I didn't look at the video, which I should have, since I didn't have the time..

Anyway, as Sudheesh said, lets enjoys the pics and not get into detailed discussions.

That is just plain silly and unrealistic. I don't know if you realize it but building something a house like the ones in Yagya's post will be ridiculousily expensive and simply unviable for a mass housing project like palm gardens. all that ornate detailed carving, not to mention the beautiful huge wooden columns that will require huge trees to be cut down. Unless of course you try and prefabricate those parts out of modern material which will then cause it look like cheap disneyland architecture and won't really contribute to to preservation of traditional Indian architecture.

These are Spanish style Villa's which are copied worldwide not least in the USA esp. in Las Vegas, much of California & Florida.

Nothing wrong with the style or gated communities actually its a breath of fresh air.

Ya, it is a very nice concept/development.

Only thing is that it will take some time to become a 'community'. I think as of now only the model villa is ready and construction happening in some others. The main factor is it is comparatively far off, daily commute to ORR, Whitefield or Electronic city may take 2-3 hours (For the CEOs who would be chauffeur driven in their Audis or BMWs or Mercs.) Also nothing is else is there as of now and it will take years for the necessary high end social infrastructure gets ready in that place or neaby.
