The homes in Resonance aim to reflect the individuality of its owners in the way its spaces are created while also inviting in the beauty of the elements. The houses feature open and covered courtyards, inner courtyards, split levels and wrap-around verandahs with size variations. How each house is oriented plays an important role in how its layout has evolved. The open spaces of the house, be it to the front or the rear, are located to the east and the south of the plot, to capture the early morning and winter sunlight. Where the backyards are north or west oriented the houses have inner courtyards with enough inlets to let in the western breeze. Another consideration was its plot location—park facing or street-facing. The street-facing homes are either courtyard homes or have a private rear yard and the park facing homes have views towards the park. Sky lit courtyards of various sizes have been integrated to as many designs as possible, to enhance the light quality within the home.

At Good Earth, we are engaged with bringing together like minded people with a common vision of building a sustainable future. Our belief is that such a community generates a strong sense of belonging while also enabling a collective sense of security and responsibility for nature. We foresee a future where many such communities keep growing, each germinating a new bio rich ecozone.
With every such project we undertake, we gain new insights and are better equipped to provide solutions. Certain concepts about the individual and the community have evolved over time. And so have our ideas. From our earliest projects, we have evolved into creating clusters of homes, retaining as much of the landscape, and providing flexibility in the design of each home, in order to personalise the space. Common infrastructure for maintaining and securing, with spaces for adequate interaction and entertainment is taken care of, making the community alive and vibrant, and ensuring the growth of a positive environment.
At Good Earth, we believe saving the planet is a joint responsibility. Thus our architectural departures are totally environment driven. We are among the few organisations in the country to faithfully implement green technology in building design and development.
