Vijaybhoomi University, Maharashtra, India
|Part of Project:||Landscaping Project|
Spread across 53 acres of land, the Vijaybhoomi campus is nestled in the foothills of Bhimashankar Jyotirlinga in the Western Ghats (Sahyadri Hills), in the Karjat town, in the Greater Mumbai region of Maharashtra.
90% of the materials used in the Landscape design project were sourced locally. All the rock that was excavated during the construction was used in a Gabion retaining-wall system along the hillsides. Local stones were also used in paving. This was done to lend a natural look that would seamlessly blend into the natural surroundings, making it seem like the buildings were always there. Landscape, plants and trees were also very carefully chosen to make sure we continued a respectful approach to the local flora of the area.
