Author: Ritu Choudhary, Product Architect

Organo Ibrahimpalle, our upcoming community redefines sustainable living through innovative design. Here, South Indian-inspired courtyard homes seamlessly blend with nature, offering a serene and eco-conscious lifestyle.

This is a home and community on our drawing boards now. It is at an early stage of development and we are actively exploring and refining the idea.

Nestled on a 30m x 12m plot, each home offers a unique blend of personal and shared green spaces. A 4m front yard invites nature into your daily life, while a vibrant green cluster street connects the community. The 4m-wide backyard, with a view of a lush forest, provides an opportunity to cultivate your kitchen garden, fostering a connection with the Earth. A 5-feet buffer between homes is a "no man's land" that weaves a tapestry of vegetation, maintained by the community.

Plot size of 30m x 12m ( 98’5” x 39’4”)

Ground Floor Layout

First Floor Layout

There is a “Thinnai,” which is a shaded sit-out with built-in seating at the entrance to each home. It serves as a transition space, allowing one to observe the surrounding neighborhood and also acts as the facilitator of social interaction in the cluster, encouraging neighborly interaction during morning/evening strolls.

A grand portal leads to a double-height living room, visually connected to the courtyard, dry kitchen, and dining area, promoting familial togetherness. No walls divide these spaces, allowing for seamless living, entertaining, and dining. The terracotta jaali on the facade creates an interesting play of lights and shadow in these spaces.

Linear and connected wet kitchens, along with utility areas, enhance convenience for homeowners and support staff. A separate service entry provides seamless access to the staff to the service areas.

Waterbody experience in the courtyard

The multi-purpose courtyard, adorned with a tranquil waterbody, becomes your personal green lung. The meticulously designed opening in the sloped roof allows one to gaze at the sky, witnessing the changing seasons and starry nights.One can cross the courtyard through the stepped stone bridge over the waterbody, leading to the drawing room, which can be used to entertain guests or serve as a second living room.

The first-floor bedrooms are split into two wings. Each of the bedrooms has a tall, sloped tile-clad ceiling and north-facing clerestory windows, creating private havens washed with sunlight. Each bedroom boasts a private closet area leading to its bathroom. 

The second wing consisting of two bedrooms offers versatility to the family, with an option to convert one of the bedrooms into a study or combine both to create a larger bedroom or retain as it is.

Sustainability is at the core of Organo Ibrahimpalle. The design of the home is compliant with “Sapthapatha” -The 7 strands of sustainability, which is a framework through which we design & measure the impact across 7 aspects- Energy, Air, Water, Food, People , Air and Shelter . At unit level, this is how we are implementing it: 

Energy strand : The south facing sloped roof is topped with Solar Panels that will meet with the energy demand of the home.

Air strand: Cross ventilation, evaporative cooling through the courtyard, and a breathable double-layered tiled Mangalore roof ensure passive cooling and thermal comfort. 

Water strand: Ibrahimpalle is a water-balanced, a water-secure and a zero-discharge community. The waste water that goes out from the homes is treated at site before being discharged. Furthermore, the homes will be installed with energy efficient water fixtures. 

Shelter strand : The walls of the home are made of Porotherm Hollow Clay Bricks, a green alternative with superior thermal insulation, reducing energy consumption. 

Food : Implementation of square foot gardens for every home in the backyard

People: The community fosters social interaction and a sense of belonging. Vehicle free and pedestrian friendly cluster streets that allow for an active vibrant. A street that connects individual houses fostering spaces that are filled with activity
