  • The brief was to design spacious 2BHK flats on a 1120Sq.M. site. The design comprises of 48 apartments that are well spaced in a 12 floor high tower. The units have been designed to minimise the internal lobby area and maximise usable space. The Living Room, Dining area and kitchen have been combined to create one space. This space with a shaded balcony works as one large uninterrupted space ideal for entertaining guests. The facade is dominated by a frame that is coloured in a bright hue of red. This frame confines the whole building on 3 sides, and is broken by a wooden mass extruded on the terrace floor that acts as the amenity space. All the other building elements have been muted to highlight the frame. The balconies on all floors are cantilevered to create a play in elevations with those additive and subtractive masses along with increasing the transparency of the structure.
