Three separate towers of different heights planned in the center of the site with common entrances. Recreational spaces are introduced after every few levels connected by sky bridges at two levels on the recreational floor that act as a separator between unit type floors. Leisure facilities introduced on the lower common level, breakout floors, and outside the tower within the complex for the users and other members. Spaces planned according to the given standards and required level of interaction amongst users. Majority apartments provided with a view of the surroundings and landscaped site.

 

Regular square-shaped towers planned with a central core considering the structural study and to minimize wastage of area to benefit both, the users and builders. Monotony has been broken by terminating the towers at different levels while the elevation treatment has been maintained by planning the breakout floors and service floors at the same level.
