Architecture in Kerala - Winding road in Calicut


We have created this beautiful winding road to access one of the mixed use developments done by Stapati, in Calicut, Kerala. The road has been designed taking into account the existing contours of the site, to keep the cutting and filling to a bare minimum. We have also used Geo-grid in place of retaining walls on one side. These are then filled with soil and compacted. Grass is grown on top of these, creating beautiful green slopes.

This project is a good example of Architecture and infrastructure development in Kerala, done in a sensible manner to balance both development as well as environmental concerns.
