Home. It’s your sanctuary; the place you retreat to for solace at the end of a long day. Unfortunately, given the fast-paced lives we lead, seldom do we get the chance to really connect with our homes and feel its restorative energies soothe our senses. Urging you to live a slower, more harmonious way of life, and offering a new dimension of experiential living in the heart of India’s Garden City, is Svasa Homes—a new luxury residential project in Bengaluru’s historic Basavanagudi neighbourhood.
Conceptualised by the illustrious Machani Group for an exclusive league of individuals, Svasa Homes seeks inspiration from timeless Indian heritage, integrating it seamlessly with contemporary conveniences to facilitate an elevated lifestyle. The project fosters an ecosystem wherein a sense of shared community is actively encouraged and where like-minded individuals can collaborate to create an environment of progress. Here, it’s not just about living a full life, but more importantly, a fulfilling one.
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW
Svasa Homes is reimagining modern-day living experiences to make them more private, inclusive, and holistic through a contemporary aesthetic that spotlights the concept of Jivana Chakra (‘Wheel of Life’). This concept centres on eight key areas of life-bringing balance—including Parisara (environment), Anuraaga (romance), Leela (recreation), Sattva (community), Vikaasa (growth), Aarthika (wealth), Praana (health), and Karya (career)—and dictates that when equilibrium is attained amongst these eight aspects, one’s life can truly be whole, complete, and fulfilled.
A two-acre Balinese landscape flaunts a sprawling Vedic-inspired courtyard at the heart of the project, which is flanked by two 18-storey towering structures, aptly christened Praana and Dhyana, inspired by physical and mental energy respectively. Separate lobbies in each tower offer residents a reason to filter in and out to interact with fellow residents in the adjacent tower. Says Hima Reddy, design director for Svasa Homes, “When you have people flowing seamlessly from one tower into the next, across the garden, it creates a sense of shared ownership of the property. It is no longer defined by the thought of ‘this is my tower, that is your tower, and we never meet’.’’
