GREEN OASIS

Open public spaces and affordable housing seem to be a dream to the city of Mumbai.

SOCIAL:

Green Oasis is a concept of modular living units created using shipping containers. With  increase in demand, container units can be added or removed as per the requirement. 

ECOLOGY: 

The oasis does justice to nature with its massive spread of green forest both vertically  and horizontally at accessible pocket spaces within the pyramid structures that resemble the hills and forest on an island. 

ECONOMY: 

The monumental structure and the boating experience around the oasis attract tourists  in revenue generation.

Open Spaces - Cultural Activities

Each residence is privileged for magnificent views of the central open forest. Exclusive balconies open up to the outdoor vertical forest zones and the spectacular view of the ocean. A common zone (interactive zone) is provided after every 3 units - A, B, C. to encourage domestic activities and community celebrations. The central forest for each of the pyramids acts as a focal point and meeting zone for all the 4 blocks. This would open up close living to nature and develop oneness with the green oasis with their everyday observations. The 4 play zones amidst each pyramid are a wonderful platform for the kids that would open up endless opportunities to create, form and nurture their cultural activities and celebrations.

RECREATIONAL ZONES

Boating - Cycling tracks - Jogging tracks - meeting points boating is one of the prime  attractions to the tourists at the bay sides which is provided at the Bandra-Worli sea link side. It aids the economic interest of the city by generating revenue.

002
COASTAL RELIEF

Jetties - Breakwater Marine traffic is one of the prime concerns for ferry transportation. Jetties are provided to make way for proper docking of the boats and ferries. Breakwater lanes are provided at 100 m from the coastline to avoid huge coastal floods reaching the shore. The point of preventing floods at the source is a sensible solution for the efforts taken to save the city.

003
SECURE MONSOON FLOODING & SEA LEVEL RISE

Rise of the platform - Break water. The total platform is raised by 6m from the coastline where the highest tide height recorded is 5.5m which is extremely rare. With the rise in sea level every year, raising the platform above the tide level would keep the living platform safe. The space below the platform can be used for fishing activities during non-flood seasons. The luxury of small domestic fishing tanks along the jetties would solve the steady annual decline in annual catch which would help in continuing the revenue.

004
GREEN DEVELOPMENT - THE THREE "R" PRINCIPLE

Reduce, Reuse & Recycle - Shipping containers - Modular.
By reusing a single 40-foot shipping container, 24600 kg of steel is reduced from being dumped at shipping yards. The modular characteristic of the containers is used to create affordable homes for the citizens and yet providing a luxurious facility of expanding the space by joining modules as per the desired requirement. A 3 bhk unit would just occupy an area of 480 sq.ft (44.6 sq.m).

GREEN ENERGY 

 Solar and Wind Mills - Clearing the ocean plastics - Recycled plastic Mumbai being almost near to the equator, a qualitative amount of energy can be harnessed from the solar energy to light up the street lamps. Mumbai receives in the range of 5.4 - 12.7 km/h wind force from the west and the North West which would add up to the power generation for the coastal life. As the tidal waves are of great energy resources, a good amount of energy can be harnessed from the tides as well at the breakwater points which in turn supply to the coastal areas. Each year hundreds of tons of waste plastic pollute the ocean and spoil the marine life which in turn affects the health of the human’s adversely. The plastics being dumped inside the land affect the groundwater by polluting it. The spread of groundwater is reduced due to plastic dumps. These plastics are used to create roads.
