We started the process of conceiving 140 Shivaji Park by trying to identify certain values and tenets that would embody what we wanted to create, in a non-linear, multi-dimensional sense. We were influenced by a whole host of things: The area of the project. The person who would want to live here. Our understanding of the way they want to live. And, a profound sense of what we wanted to leave behind.
There are few areas left in Mumbai that are quite as charming as Shivaji Park. The project itself is tucked away in a quiet, leafy, by lane that overlooks the Park. There is also the matter of the view - spectacular, unobstructed views of the Arabian Sea in front and the Eastern Waterfront on the other side. Distinctly old school some might say. Modern and accessible in another person’s view. But we don’t need to sell you the area, do we?
We wanted to create something spectacular without making it look like it didn’t belong there. The result is a design that makes you feel like there is no boundary between your home and what lies beyond. The façade of the building is an ode to the heritage of the area. The confluence of brick, concrete, wood and metal give it a unique character.
