Antara Dehradun

Uttarakhand, India
The Antara Dehradun Senior Living development is located on a 13.2 acre site that is set in a beautiful natural landscape with the Himalayas and a verdant green river valley framing the surroundings. The community’s program includes 215 independent living apartments, clubhouse, wellness center, administration, and support spaces organized around the east-west axis of the main vehicular and pedestrian roads. The clubhouse entry court at the west axis creates a sense of arrival for visitors and residents, and serves as a threshold for a dramatic view of the mountains and valley beyond.

The design recognizes the importance of preserving the main road with its existing trees on both sides. This road and allee of trees will become the main pedestrian entrance, which will bring residents and visitors to an existing temple. The entry sequence has been analyzed and a considered procession has been incorporated into the design.

A network of pedestrian pathways will connect every building, generating an extensive range of walking alternatives with varying degrees of inclines and physical effort levels for residents. Seating and rest areas are provided along the way.
