Masterplans

Building Energy India provides the best Sustainable Masterplan design services. We work on large scale development projects in any climate type. We have solutions for every type of project from very dry and arid regions to humid and dense forests.

We believe in designing with nature, respecting the environment and finding design solutions that preserve the natural beauty and still provide the best way of life on site.

We focus on using multiple layers of private- semi-private- semi-public – public spaces on site to allow for inhabitants to feel at home while they engage with the natural environment.

We go deep into regional roots and find inspiration from the local artisans and craftsmen to develop custom solutions for building elements that are climate responsive. In our designs we avoid destructive activities like tree cutting, landfill, excavation, and habitat loss. We focus on reviving the inherent natural characteristics using indigenous plant species, creating a safe and harmonious environment for all.
