The Master Plan of Lavasa has been designed in conjunction with HOK International Limited, USA. The plan is based on the principles of New Urbanism which conveniences its residents by placing all essential components of daily life within walking distance of each other. Besides this, architectural considerations such as land character, building frontage and other design guidelines have also been taken into consideration while making the Master Plan.
The landscape and architectural design of Lavasa is based on the transect model, i.e. development is denser near the town centre, gradually reducing as one moves uphill.
The Master Plan has been inspired by Biomimicry – the science that learns from nature and adapts these learnings to planning, design and architecture.
