How can the Project Design influence your Happiness?
A peaceful home and a happy neighbourhood are really important in these socially-distanced and challenging times. Living in the comfort of our homes, away from our family and friends gets a little better because of helpful neighbours and a well-planned and welcoming project premises. Believe it or not, living in a happy development can make a big difference to you, your well-being and your dear ones.
What exactly is a happy development or a happy neighbourhood? Simply put, a happy project is the one that feels like home from entry of the project to the entrance of your house. The master plan of it is such that it offers not just functional benefits or visual engagement, but also impresses the mind, body and soul with emotional, psychological and intellectual benefits. Architects and developers are progressively embracing the notion that they can play a role in nurturing good health and good communities. By designing structures that make it stress-free for dwellers to make positive lifestyle shifts such as maximum movement, absorption of natural light and easy communication, developers are contributing to the happiness quotient of homebuyers.
A project premises that is well protected and secured heightens the liveability and likeability. Well-planned common areas, well-maintained amenities and well-designed resident and visitor management systems can ensure that each interaction and every experience is simple and smooth. The transition from the outside to the inside is pleasant and easy.
A happy development provides different kinds of corners and zones for addressing different age groups. While the meditation zone can be great for the seniors, the swimming pool can be a space for the little ones. The protected and well-shaded zones can become reading arenas in the evening, while the discussion areas can open up a world of opportunities and thoughts for the young adults. A happy society is created not just by people who live in it, but also the overall design of the project and the thought that goes into crafting the diverse spaces. The open, semi-open and closed interaction spaces for diverse age groups will make sure that the happiness quotient of each and every dweller is high at all times.
LANDSCAPE AND DESIGN
The landscape and amenities add the additional interaction factor into the project and its use. The peripheral areas should offer a sense of safety and security. The well-designed and systematically planned vehicular and pedestrian traffic flow can ensure that the residents’ stay safe while spending careless time with themselves in the premises. The vehicular-free playing zones can ensure the safety of the children is prioritised.
Not just the residents, a happy development can make the visitors happy too. An expansive parking space with easy access to the different wings and buildings, wide driveways, less columns and easy pickup and drop-off zones can make the experience welcoming for every visitor.
In some projects and designs, architects go over and beyond to appeal to the fundamental ethos of the dwellers and establish a higher oneness. For example, today ‘net-zero’ energy buildings, construction with non-toxic materials, garden beds with edible produce, shared amenities and flexible spaces, buildings incorporating public health values etc. are increasingly being introduced to help buildings align with the residents’ lifestyles and likings.
Don’t just choose a home; choose the entire project or development. A sense of community contributes to personal growth and acts as a catalyst for positive behaviour in the community. People of all ages must feel comfortable, safe and welcomed in your home, your project. A symphonic balance between physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing should be struck, effortlessly. Choose your project wisely – a happy neighbourhood means a happier you.
