About Us

WeCommunities is a brand of Vivaasv Infra Pvt. Ltd., a 5-year old Bengaluru-based company. Our experience spans multiple real-estate projects in different states of India. We operate via a small core team, with transparent and open and collaborative processes. We bring diverse knowledge and experience in design, engineering, construction, farming and legal domains.

We build and manage communities by bringing like-minded people together, with a strong emphasis on sustainable living. As human impact and climate change bring about humongous and seemingly insurmountable challenges, we urgently need to pause. Breathe. Think. Changes are possible. Deeper connections with the land can be forged. Living better is a sensible option.


We build communities based on coming together of common interests, ideas and shared visions.


Environmentally conscious design and processes with low-footprint homes.


Tighter control, reduced supply chain complexities and cost, boosting local economy.


Our philosophy and processes incorporate long-term food, water & energy efficiency.











Since bootstrapping our first community in 2016, we are seeing an ever-increasing interest in living better, including growing one's own food. We are now building our 3rd collective.
