In rapidly urbanizing NCR, often the initial success of a project is dependent on its image - leading to the emergence of forms which try to break away from the ordinary and materials that try to stand apart from their surroundings. In the process, the casualty is often the programmatic and functional requirements and their true representation. Spectra breaks this impasse by generating a form that derives from the legal requirements of increasing setbacks with height resulting in a tapered form that is at once unique and reflective of its generating reality. Spectra will be an important social and leisure hub in the area with its retail, entertainment and hospitality facilities.
The front part of the site that abuts the Gurgaon-Dwarka Expressway is planned with retail shops on the lower levels, a food court and entertainment areas. A multiplex and a hotel are planned on the upper levels. The rear part of the site is planned with two buildings, with 2 levels of retail at the lower levels and serviced suites are on the upper levels. Each floor is planned to bring in sufficient daylighting. Public and communal breakout spaces are also created at the lower levels to ensure a high street culture within the development which is accentuated by the predominantly pedestrianized character of the whole site.
