Event description

Description

This is open to NAWIC members and their guests

Project Description: The Springfield Road Residences are two single-family homes in the Henrico County of Virginia, which are approximately 3,600 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. Both are designed and constructed according to the principals of Vaastushastra. The tradition and knowledge of Vaastushastra is more than 3000 years old. In Vaastushastra the fenestrations and function within a building are arranged according to directions making the spaces green. Each of the homes is cardinally oriented on the Site with the main door facing North and a side door facing East. Windows are placed to allow maximum daylight including numerous windows on the East side to bring in morning sun-light. The placement and layout of the rooms is according to the principals of Vaastushastra. Patil is the lead designer and general contractor on this project.


Project Vision: We wanted to start out small in the field of Development and Construction and therefore decided to tackle a small Residential development of two single family homes in the Henrico County of VA. We are the Owners, Architects, and Developers for this project and Aparna is the lead designer and decision maker for the job. She has been responsible for all aspects of the project development right from Site selection up to construction administration.
