Setting a Benchmark for Townships in India's Northeast

TOWNLAND was commissioned to design the masterplan for a mixed use township on the outskirts of Guwahati in North-East India. For a small township it contains a wide range of uses with a mix of villas, apartment blocks, an outdoor mall with restaurants and shops, small offices, a 4 star hotel, a clubhouse and temple. Inspired by the natural beauty of the undulating hills that form the backdrop to the Site and the meandering channels of the nearby Brahmaputra River, TOWNLAND has designed an unconventional Master Plan utilizing only naturally curved lines and spaces.

A lifestyle celebrating the outdoor living formed the starting point for the urban design concept. A strong visual and practical connection between indoor and outdoor spaces has been consistently applied to all building typologies. The design of pedestrian only accessible plazas, parks and green corridors connecting all major buildings and precincts was introduced to create a more eco-friendly and less vehicle dominated way of living for its future residents and visitors. Situated within walking distance of everybody’s home, at the core of the residential precinct, lies a large tear-drop shaped park and water body forming the central green lung and recreational space for all residents to enjoy.
