Residential Development Gurgaon

RSP INDIA / Residential Development Gurgaon

This project was shortlisted for the world architecture festival, Barcelona 2012. The brief to us from the client was simple, “Give us an iconic building that will make mark on the city skyline”. We got started by designing two circular towers of 100 metres each.

Dominating the city skyline

While the two towers dominate the landscape in this project as well as miles of skyline beyond, the landscape and master planning of the project evolved in order to maximise open spaces and social corners.

The design process focused on three strategic levels; the cluster level with garden terraces and party terraces, the block level with tot lots, lobbies, courts and block gardens, and the development level with larger play areas and interactive community areas.

Design Direction

Spotting it from a mile away

The twin circular towers are designed to stand out prominently in the sector and since the building is located on a major road in the area, the location was apt to plan an iconic design.

A master plan that facilitates social interactions

The master plan has been evolved as a structured built & open space arrangement, where the built forms have been conceived as free-standing iconic towers for urban identity. The landscape flows through the entire site establishing a conflict-free pedestrian network that weaves around the various amenities.

Planning experiences via scale

Varying height of blocks with multi-level social terraces and a generic built-form with terraces and voids relate better to human scale.

An eye on the environment

The project is designed to link to neighbouring green areas and helps build a larger eco-system. With over 70% of the land area being designed as a vibrant green ecology comprising of plantations, gardens, water bodies & landscaped avenues, these ambitious, iconic & dynamic residential towers provide a unique mix of function and environment-friendliness.
