return to projects

Working on a complex post-industrial site in Pune, India, we sought to embrace the area's heritage and bring disparate elements together.

We centred our solution on three ideas:

  • Bio-diversity spine
  • Vibrant retail streets
  • Infrastructure

Design details:

  • A species-rich, bio-diversity 'spine', creating an environment for nature to thrive.

  • Pedestrian walkways sitting adjacent to the retail zone and crossing the 'spine' at strategic locations to enhance the pedestrian experience.

  • Use of railway infrastructure iconography along the walkways to reflect the site's heritage.

  • Recognition of the new green area as a key element of local stormwater management.
