GoodEarth introduces Malhar Patterns – Open Plan Home
GoodEarth, known for constructing environment-friendly and sustainable neighborhoods introduces its latest Community called Malhar Patterns – Open Plan Homes.
GoodEarth Malhar Patterns is an eco-village spread over 12 acres of land, located in Kengeri, Bangalore. The Open Plan Homes are cleverly designed spaces, with minimal walls or, no walls at all, and seem to flow seamlessly from the entrance verandah, through the living and dining areas to the rear verandah and into the rear garden. This creates a sense of spaciousness in an otherwise compact plan, and the beauty of the outdoors can be appreciated from various points within the home. The position of the plot in the layout and proximity to the parks decides the emphasis on the front or rear garden.
Malhar Patterns is truly a distilled essence of GoodEarth‘s understanding in designing layouts for homes, and is based on how people live in them and use them, and on how the home can help them interact with their neighborhood. Each of the patterns in GoodEarth Malhar has its unique characteristics. The GoodEarth Malhar- Patterns project is the fifth community of the Malhar Eco-village concept, blending aesthetic traditions with development.
Patterns is located to the south of the Malhar development, at the hub of its activities. Set amidst 13 acres of gently rolling land, this new community sits in cosy comfort with the vibrant Sports Club and the development’s largest open space, the play field. The Sports Club plays host to many a sporting activity from indoor to outdoor games. A Gym, a refreshing pool and spa to unwind in are exclusive to the club. But that isn’t all… the wooded jogging trail is just a hop and a skip away. The seasonal stream flowing alongside the trail stretches all the way southeast of Patterns.
