Simplicity is not the goal. It is the by-product of a good idea and modest expectations. This project was a premium segment upmarket residential apartment building, with all elements echoing evolved lifestyles and taste. The idea was to create a controlled environment that would maximize opportunity to interact with the outside. The layout of these luxurious apartments included views in two directions. The apartment is accessed by a unique private lobby, with its own courtyard security, redefining luxury. The prominent wind direction is from West - North West. During the monsoons, high humidity winds blow from the south-east. Natural ventilation due to the dual-aspect windows mitigates the effect of these winds. A microclimate is created on site with shaded areas.
