Clean roads, dustbins at regular intervals and daily cleaning/sweeping of the community area. The desire to leave a low ecological footprint and high cleanliness goes far beyond that at Avigna Villas in Chennai.
A FIFA standard football field, extensive park area, large numbers of trees left standing with houses/amenities designed around them, and gardens to each Villa. This large ratio of greenery to built area not only keeps the area a little cooler than the normal temperature, it also adds a large volume of oxygen day in and day out. The lungs of the villa.
The breeze blows well across the colony, making ventilations in each of the homes very refreshing. It is a pleasant experience to sit by the window and feel a closeness to nature.There are also hills behind the township which help create a funneling effect which maintains ventilation.
Solar panels are used extensively to allay electrical costs, all this without taking away from the greenery or breeze.
Within each house the windows are set up to the roof, not a foot or three below it. This not only helps receive as much natural light and wind as possible but is also beneficial from a health point of view.
It is not all about planting trees and gardens either, Avigna maintains every blade of grass, all plants and trees using the DEWATS system to water them. This slightly scary acronym translates into an even scarier full form. Decentralised Natural Waste Water Treatment. This reduces particles in the water five times lower than the government required level.
It is a pleasure to jog in the early mornings on the track surrounded by grass and the calling of birds.The air is definitely cleaner here, given that the density of houses and volume of traffic are far less than the heart of the city. One of our new residents has even noticeda decrease in a breathing problem he was suffering from while living in more crowded places.
Avigna Villas are a dream come true for those with nature in their heart.
