The ELA Residential Complex is located in the city of Chennai, southeast of India. The project consists of about 950 apartments and studios, the latter of them intended for students of a nearby university. The project also consists of a series of facilities to give service to the residences, as well as vast green areas, which will join an urban park also planned by ABIBOO Architecture in the same parcel, as per Indian law requirements.
The site is located next to the main national highway connecting the two largest cities in the South of India (Chennai and Bangalore). The project combines a number of independent blocks, articulated in two areas defined by the presence of an existing power line tower on the site, which becomes the structuring element of a large linear eco-park with innovative solutions for alternative energy resources, and that turns out to be protagonist of the project and at the same time, the architectural relationship between the project and the National Highway. Spaces of social interaction are designed to maintain therelationship with the numerous green spaces provided in order to create a healthy living environment.
