Upper Duncan Estates – 29 Nov 2012
The project deals with redevelopment of eighteen plots in the inner city of Mumbai, measuring almost 250m of length. The length of the site is expressed through a 250m long linear built form, which grows with acquisition of subsequent plots. The building expands over three phases leaving appropriate recreational grounds to handle the density of the development.

Barbecue Pavilion, Willingdon Sports club, Mumbai, India

Project Description

The project is a simple roof set in vast landscape of a Golf course in Mumbai. Being an extension to Willingdon Sports Club, it lies surrounded by cluster of old buildings with sloping roof-scape. The Project brief was to design a semi open pavilion, which extends the dining area of the club towards the landscaped Gardens. It was planned to house an informal Barbeque Pavilion where guests could gather for a quite meal and enjoy the breeze from Arabian Sea.

We imagined this piece of roof as a light fabric plane, almost about to take off towards the sky. It could be read as a bird, a kite, a floating feather, or just a roof. It leaves space for you to imagine the way you want. It continues the rhythm of surrounding sloping roof-scape, building a harmonious relationship with the existing built forms. The heaviness of the roof dematerialises into a translucent fabric plane, just about to float.

The roof is designed as four folding triangular planes that adapt to the edges of the patio. A magnificent Fur tree rises in the Patio, where the roof cranks to make space for its foliage to grow. The edge towards the Garden is kept free of columns leading to cantilevers that frame the view of the landscape. The structure spans white translucent fabric across the patio, filtering a milky light beneath.
