how to design an energy efficient residential complex
- Nidhi u can go through d works of Ar. Satprem Maini (Auroville)
- RabiRashmi solar housing complex(Kolkata)
- works of Ar.Sanjay Prakash at Bangalore.
- National Media Centre Co- Operative Housing Scheme (Gurgaon) by Ar.Vinod Gupta.

This Housing Project consists of 180 houses on individual plots, each having varying requirements and finances to suit the needs of individual owners. Innovative waste and water management techniques are employed to achieve sustainability.

Refer to this book for more details - "Energy Efficient Buildings in India" by Mili Majumdar- TERI publications.
TZed Homes, Bangalore - that is a very good case study for sustainable / eco sensitive Housing. A+D magazine November 2008 issue contains a good detailed info about that project.
