Green Retreat in the City |
LA 47
Aarey Bhakar Public Park
3.70 Acres
(2005-2008)
Location- Dindoshi, Goregaon (E), Mumbai
Client- S D Constructions, Jeyakumar Associates
Landscape Architect- Swati Dike
Located amidst a residential area with high population density, the park was envisaged for heavy usage by all age groups for active and passive recreation. The site being surrounded by high- rise concrete buildings, the design idea centered around the park to have a picturesque quality and be densely planted to provide an oasis, in the otherwise, harsh surrounding built forms. With the ideas to recover the initial cost of development and later maintenance cost, and to make the project self-sustainable, many revenue generating activities were also proposed.
