Location: Lb Road, Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
Area: 10,000 Sq.M.
Client: Mahindra Gesco
A Multi Story Building planned for the country's leading private bank. The centrally air-conditioned building with a plinth of around 10,000 SqM.
The geometry of the site with a narrow road front and a very long depth, posed a considerable challenge in this site.
The glass cone that widens as it goes higher was intended to nullify the narrow width of the building. This cone encloses an atrium that has a shifting centre that gives dynamism to the form.
The interior spaces are in two wings that flank the core. A gentle curve unifies the two wings, as the rear of the site widens from the front to the rear end. This aids to mitigate the transition of the two widths.
It is a high tech building with central air-conditioning and sophisticated external and internal finish. This is a flagship building for the property development division of the Mahindra Group of companies (Mahindra Gesco).
