Jaipur is the fastest developing city in the western India, with a huge and promising potential in the commercial sector. The project is a .65 acre commercial development, resting on the most important 45 m wide commercial corridor of the modern city, Tonk road. This central spine, which connects the old walled city, runs through entire city and leads to Tonk, another major city in the state of Rajasthan, has all major government offices and commercial buildings in the city.
The building is a G+7 tower with ground and first as dedicated retail areas, and floors above are office areas, the terrace opens up to the best of the views with
Moti Doongri fort and Aravlis to the east and Vidhan Sabha and panormic urban sprawl to the west, has been beautifully landscaped to act as an active interaction zone for the people working in the offices on 6 floors, also the landscape peeping out from the fenestration on parapet, merges beautifully with the character of the facade. The building also has 3 basements addressing the huge parking and service requirement.
Designed on a regular grid having both the service and commercial core within these lines, stands out due to its clean geometry and regular form and a distinct contemporary elevation treatment inspired from “Bar code”, speaking the language of retail sector, while also taking care of the glare and heat in the arid climate of the region, which could be caused by a full glass facade in east orientation. The advantage of regular grid plan is that it provides a clear, flexible and modular floor plate maximizing the utility in the office space planning, also the placement of cores facilitate a 3 side open floor plate inviting optimum sun through out the day time for ideal working conditions.
