Forming part of a larger community, Arati 3 consists of 2 apartment buildings having 12 apartments with a mix of studio, single, double & three bedrooms units.. The buildings are flanked on the south face by an internal road towards which all living room balconies open out to while the quieter areas such as bedrooms & study face inner gardens. An open central staircase opens the building to both - inner gardens as well as outer street. One of the key features of the project are the multiple levels at which the apartments are put, creating for each apartment an individual landing foyer. Other key features are its micro balconies which allow opening out the long French windows for a sit out. The boxing of the balconies give additional protection against the harsh sun and strong monsoon rains. The frame structure uses cavity infill walls with a vermiculite fill for insulation. Aerated fly ash bricks used on the roof tops reduces heat gain on the upper levels. Integrating other infrastructural features such as storm water management, waste water recycling and reuse and low maintenance garden.
