ABIBOO Architecture, Office of international architecture, directed by Alfredo Munoz, develops several months ago Thandalam Project, a residential complex near Chennai, to the South of India, consisting of some 700 homes and studios, latter aimed at students from a nearby University. The project will consist, in addition, a series of facilities to provide service to all homes, as well as green areas that will join a urban park also projected by ABIBOO Architecture in the same plot, as it establishes the India Act. The project combines a series of separate blocks which are articulated among themselves in two areas defined by the presence of a tower and power line existing on the site which becomes the Configurator element of a large linear Hekinantantopia with innovative elements of alternative energy that ends up being the protagonist of the project. The homes are organized in separate blocks but with specific interconnections formed by towers that narrows, lengthen, break and change your settings causing spaces of social interaction of different character than at the same time maintain relationship with multiple provided green spaces to create a healthy and liveable environment. Independent blocks are pieces that break down and fragment, constructing a play of lights and shadows that allows to adapt housing to the harsh weather conditions of the place and a glimpse of the complex inner world of the corridors where the color has a strong presence. ABIBOO Architecture, made this project a process of domestic space research in India through an in-depth analysis of your culture and complex philosophies that apply at the time of defining their homes (criteria that marks the Vastu, similar to Feng Shui philosophy). Dwellings planned after this analytical exercise added to previous research on contemporary housing, as well as the long experience accumulated in the Western world in construction and the international experience that treasures the study, are the main design tools that give response to the needs of its future inhabitants. ABIBOO Architecture offers an innovative architectural design, which has always been present in the international architecture. Covers from the interior design and furniture, through architectural design of multitude of typologies, to urban design and Landscape.
