This project is located on the Pune - Ahmednagar highway on the outskirts of Pune. The program consists of a hypermarket, anchor retail, vanilla retail, food outlets, a family entertainment center and a multi plan. A large entrance plaza is created along the highway, punctuated by two vertical glass cylinders, which mark the entrance to the mall. The design concept focuses on creating a large central atrium with all the retail outlets looking out onto the atrium with the hypermarket and anchor shop located at either end. The atrium broadens as it rises up to give visibility to the upper levels, which house the food and entertainment areas. A judicious mix of a solid stone base with stucco, glass and aluminum above gives the facade a rich vibrancy accentuated by two entrance glass cylinders which act as totems anchoring the building on the highway.
