Situated on a triangular site on the Delhi-Gurugram border in close proximity to the Airport, the design presents an opportunity to generate a mixed-use scheme comprising of offices, retail and serviced apartments. The intent is to arrange a series of blocks that promote creative interaction between the buildings and the people, in order to enhance spatial and visual permeability across the site. This results in a network of routes that converge on a central plaza at the heart of the site. The site sits at a prominent corner edge, which lends identity to the site giving it a distinct urban character. Various site conditions help to derive the form to generate a triangular band that is fragmented to provide access to the central spaces, whilst adding porosity to the form. Three main building blocks are arranged around the central plaza in the form of three strips, consisting of retail, offices and serviced apartments. the design strategy adopted allows for the central open plaza to be shaded from the scorching summer sun, further propagating its usability. All the common areas are designed to be in the form of open spaces with dedicated terrace gardens on the second floor acting as spill over spaces for restaurants and as provisional retreats for offices. However, each block, in spite of being a continuous mass, has been treated independently, with separate lobbies and entrance areas congregating on to the centre of the site. The design pays close attention to communal access to landscape greens and terrace gardens from all the floors to generate a scenic panorama.
