This project is a 32,300SM Grade-A office block within Mumbai’s Bandra Kurla Complex. The design responds to both the urban and environmental contexts of the site. Using Mumbai’s extensive history of arcades as a precedent, the building’s north façade, fronting the Bandra Kurla Complex Road, features a full-height building arcade. The arcade gives the building an appropriately civic scale and presence on the street. A secondary, more human-scale pedestrian arcade is delineated by a seemingly floating white glass tube which also defines the building’s podium and provides a terrace at the fourth floor. The pass-through lobby will connect the pedestrian arcade to an automobile drop-off area in the back. The extensive environmental features will allow this project to pursue a LEED Gold rating.
Office: 32,000 SF
Project in collaboration with KPF
