Setting another benchmark towards progress, ARK Reza Kabul Architects is currently working on a high-rise residential development in Mumbai called One Marina. This project is a jewel in the Marine Drive skyline, standing tall in the heart of the city. The project developed by Sheth Creators offers a well planned beautiful living space which is the hallmark of thoughtfully laid out flats. The configuration varies from a 2BHK to a 5BHK, which brings a lifestyle that befits royalty with its beautiful apartments at Marine Lines.
FAÇADE AT ONE MARINA
While high-rise building façades come with their challenges, the lower height of the tower has scope for a mix of technologies and materials to get creative with the design. At One Marina, we at ARK Reza Kabul Architects experimented with three different façade options for the podium parking spaces. Each of the concepts was uniquely identified for the project to match its overall aesthetic and the sea-facing topography of the project.
We presented the client with three options, which included a Vertical façade, a Dynamic façade, and a Square Façade. Each façade concept was visualised to be sustainable and capture the light and wind and convert it into energy that can help sustain the need for electricity in the public spaces. With the advent of newer materials and technologies in façade design, the possibilities of experimenting with the design and making façades semi-functional are endless.
