THE DESIRE WITHIN
The CEO Magazine India|June 2020
CHAIR EMERITUS OF THE WADHWA GROUP VIJAY WADHWA HAS ALWAYS LOOKED BEYOND ECONOMICS TO A GREATER VISION IN CONSTRUCTING DISTINCTIVE BUILDINGS. BOASTING HALF A CENTURY OF SUCCESS IN BUSINESS, HE IS OBVIOUSLY ONTO SOMETHING.

The world resurrecting from the pandemic of coronavirus has taught us the value of ‘healthy living’. Visionary developer Vijay Wadhwa, Chair Emeritus and Mentor at Mumbai’s The Wadhwa Group, has followed this principle of ‘healthy living’ for 50-odd years, beginning when he embarked on his mission to design and construct dream homes for millions in India’s financial capital.

Amid the current global health crisis where the modern trend of building compact homes seems to have just created infection hotspots and ill-immune communities across India and South-East Asia, Vijay’s philosophy of designing homes for ‘healthy living’, where he brings nature inside every house he builds, could be one way to support a healthy and sustainable future. “We must build healthy homes to build immunities and better communities so that we can combat any such calamity in the future,” Vijay insists sincerely.

It is Vijay’s prolific and meticulous penchant to a design philosophy inspired by Mother Nature, called VENTILIT, that has allowed The Wadhwa Group to successfully fill its 45 million square feet of residential, commercial premises and townships with abundant sunlight and fresh air. Vijay carries historic, spiritual and holistic views to incorporate nature into his designs and he is focused on these ‘healthy living’ projects where he gets to perfectly blend modern-day architecture with Vastu Shastra, an ancient Indian architectural science, and Feng Shui, again an age-old practice that balances the human living environment with nature.
