Design Narrative

Kings House in Bangalore

The idea of going higher was restricted by the existing Byelaws which did not allow the building to go beyond 12m.

The masterplan had to thus examine and organize the programs of the site to address the complexities of Super luxury living within the Green Parameters embedded within the site context.

Two blocks were planned to house one apartment on each side per floor that would emerge from sunken gardens and blend into the peripheral greens amidst the site. Each block was articulated using the existing vegetation as a stencil and building was thus carved out.

To compensate on the loss of lower vegetation from the site during the construction, every floor plate extends into greens and balconies generating great diversity within the site context.

An integrated design approach was followed to evaluate and maximize the energy reductions of the building. Solar studies and simulations were used to generate data regarding daylighting, shadow analysis, rainfall pattern and shading systems.

These studies, along with lighting analysis, were critical to generate the load calculations and sizing and selection of all the Mechanical Systems.

To optimize the cooling effect, the building mass and window openings were shaped and sized to best capture the breezes based on Computer Generated Simulations.

The construction deals intensely on using green materials to integrate multiple sustainable features into the project. Using materials like AAC Blocks, PV Cells for solar lighting, Solar Reflective tiles for High heat reflectance, Double Glazed Windows, Permeable Paving & Rain water harvesting for Ground Water Recharge are few of the systems that saves significant energy and minimizes the carbon footprint.

While the concept of the building focuses on green factors of design and use of sustainable materials, the aesthetic character of the bulding is far from being compromised.

New Property in Bangalore

Occupying a strategic position in the heart of Bangalore, the site is in close proximity with some of the best hospitality, medical and commercial facilities in the city.The clients brief saw a potential for limited ‘Sky Villas’ where the architecture would re-interpret new levels of luxury in living.

The design challenge was to capitalize on the potential of the 30,000 Sqft site without compromising on the existing green cover and minimizing the ecological footprint of the structure. An integrated design approach was followed to evaluate and maximize the energy reductions of the building. Solar studies and simulations were used to generate data regarding day lighting, shadow analysis, rainfall pattern and shading systems. The building functions as a selective environmental filter, enhancing the best components of the regional climate to address heating, cooling and ventilation needs of the interiors.

The project houses 7 Sky residences (read apartments) with areas ranging from 10,000 Sqft to 22,000 sqm individually and each of which is intricately crafted to suit the client’s lifestyles who live in the Middle East and are Indians by origin. The design expressed in this article is the first designed apartment of the King’s house with an area of 10,000 sqft. The spaces are conceptualized as a harmonious blend between the Indian and Middle Eastern styles in a completely modern approach. The design strongly incorporates the Mashrabiya or Shanasheel (architectural elements resembling the Indian Jaalis) which hold together the entire interior design language.

Each residence is designed in (spatial) layers based on the space usage in terms of privacy. The unit opens up to an Entrance lobby which doubles up as a waiting area for visitors and is connected with an Ante room and a library/study area which can also be used for discussions and meetings looking out to the greens. The entrance lobby being a part of the public section of the unit and is designed elegantly with the Mashrabiya forming the partition, the ceiling which is lit and also forms the door of the Library.
