ents who will soon be doing a residence design as part of their Architectural Design studio, were taken around the Villa project. The 5000 sqft. units, many already occupied, were shown in detail and students were full of questions on finishes and fittings at the end of it. They were also shown a completed unit with interiors in place in order to help them understand the optimal usability of space. The units spread over 3 levels are all very well planned and we hope the students will be able to take the understanding of volumes into their design. The group also spent time at the Club house, “Iridium” to understand hospitality planning.
Finally, what can be more rewarding than a wonderful lunch at the club house? This was exactly what was needed after an exhaustive tour and was duly accompanied by the Project representatives. We had carried the lunch with us in the morning, generously arranged by the REVA management. All students helped to serve the food, and Mr. Senthil and his team graciously joined us for the lunch. Good practice is to leave the premises as clean as we found it, and all students and Faculty quickly cleared up the premises and left 77’’E place by 2:15pm.
It was indeed a wonderful experience for the architecture students to see the Services being so well integrated into a Project of this scale and completely in adherence to all Building norms and best practices in the real estate Industry. We hope that this exposure visit will benefit our students and will motivate them to put such high level of professionalism and ethics into practice when they start working in the real world.
In the end, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to our beloved Chancellor Dr. P. Shyama Raju for initiating this Site visit and wish that our students would take this experiential learning experience to the next level by implementing the “out of the classroom learnings” into their design.
