OOZE architects shared with us their mixed residential and commercial project located in Gundala, 35 km south of the Hyderabad city center in India. Their aim for ‘Forest Life’ was to create an eco-community with different individual villa typologies located within the existing forest next to a much denser mixed use development with residential towers and a commercial podium with proximity shops leisure activities and offices located along the main road leaving Hyderabad towards the south. More images and architects’ description after the break.
