  1. 1. Creating green E A R T H Touch the Earth. Feel it.
  2. 2. I know why I picked this place. I now have a reasonto wake up every morning.Manoj Cheriyancheri: ZED TransIndus
  3. 3. Indias first two Platinum‐rated* buildings—indeed the worlds first—were designed and created by ZED. ZED ratings are secured both at intent stage and after completion. Most buildings don’t stand the test of the rating after it’s completed. ZED homes do. We rate them after as an ethical practice.ZED Earth When you buy a home at ZED Earth, you dont buy a home that thinks. These homes are built to be naturally cool, with a combination of elements that are woven into the campus at large, and in a way that these zero‐energy homes are built to avoid heat gain. ZED Earth homes hug the landscape, offer sober and earthy tones that blend with the green around. As the trees lining the avenues gain height and foliage over the next few years at this campus, the houses will be discovered rather than looked at. These pages offer you a tour of what these homes offer—in terms of handpicked construction material, what it means to you as a long‐term resident, and in looks and aesthetic appeal. * The Indian green Business Council’s building rating system offers Platinum rating as the highest rating for energy efficiency of a residential building.
  4. 4. The Setting Every leisure space at the ZED Earth campus is a quiet, social space designed to encourage conversation. To the northwest, beyond the campus, is a centuries‐old, placid lake. To the far end of the property is shrubland which will remain as derelict land forever—the way it has remained for hundreds of years. The gardens in each home are carefully designed to include only indigenous plant species that are water‐efficient, absorb high carbon levels, are pleasant to the eye, and purify the air.
  5. 5. A whole new Set on a land sprawl of twentyfive acres, ZED Earth is our most ambitious green residential enclave yet. Designed to rely little on the outside degree of world for energy, water or waste management, ZED Earth is a world in itself. It offers freedom from power and water shutdowns of the city grids. Wake up each morning in a quiet, verdant oasis that celebrates the unique flora and fauna of North Bangalore. ZED Earth Homes are designed to freedom offer vaastu‐compliant exquisite spaces, with high ceilings, interesting gabled roofs, terraces and backyards that offer promise of pleasant barbecue evenings, split levels that accentuate spaces, private nooks that are designed for personal comfort .
  6. 6. ZED’S own inhouse architects, designers, water, waste and energy technologists work on the unique range of ZED systems. All of them are drawnOur Shade from the best of schools the world over. ZED domain expertise has won global acclaim. Our construction methods and quality regime are obvious with the world‐class finishes ZED homes offer. These zero energy designs offer the best of comfort and convenience –including air conditioning– , and yet secure independence from the grid of Green for power and water. The ZED Earth campus has zero dependence on the water supply board, no lines connecting to the Sewerage Board, and relies only 20 per cent on the Power Grid. Thats our shade of green.

  10. 10. The ZED Earth homes are grouped in theme‐based clusters ‐ Ashlars, Corbels, Gabions, Icon Classics and Casablancas . . . each retellingListening to the winds, the story, gently blending with the natural habitat. The streetscape in these clusters have an identity that is distinct, personal. Each home responds to its unique position in the cluster—with deference to its neighbours and to the cluster space, its particularthe skies... directional orientation, or an unusual shape of the plot. All ZED Earth villas are designed to have your home meld into the landscape. At the campus, there is a return to old‐fashioned values and traditional technologies that blend with the experience and understanding of contemporary thinking—where porches invite leisurely chats; courtyards offers quiet nooks to take in the breeze; and terraces offer that space in the evening for you to unwind over the grand spectacle of a sunset.
  11. 11. Corbel is the dressed stonework jutting out of a wall to carry any weight. The technique of corbelling,where rows of corbels deeply keyed inside a wall support a projecting wall or parapet, has been used formany centuries. The Corbel cluster at ZED Earth sets a distinct tone to the streetscape by defining villaentrances and arrayed street benches. Corbel as a metaphor represents the three stages of life. It, inessence, celebrates life. These deep‐eco villas offers spaces ranging from about 3000‐3400sqft. CORBEL
