MUMBAI, January 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The client wants the word Tower to be replaced with Sparkle.
The 18-storeyed towers of Kalpataru Sparkle by GA design are a distinct landmark. Utilizing a modernist approach to design, this housing redevelopment project explores a harmonious amalgamation of different spatial configurations to create three residential towers with uninterrupted views of the Bandra highway.
Harmonious amalgamation of different spaces by GA design.
The coherent and unified visual vocabulary of the complex is evident through the stepped-form balconies juxtaposed within a solid white frame, and the choice of a grey-and-white colour palette to emphasize the subtle interplay between light and shadow in the building facade. With strong, clean lines enhancing their verticality, the towers convey an aura of stateliness. The towers are hoisted on a large double-storey podium that houses the parking, creating a large common deck that features numerous facilities and green spaces for the residents' benefit - the façade of this podium is a laser-cut aluminium screen in a fluidic wave pattern, which contrasts remarkably with the geometric design of the building elevation. Curving gently at the entrance and rising to form a three-storey high foyer, the podium becomes an inimitable part of the urban fabric, cementing the identity of Kalpataru Sparkle in the eyes of the pedestrian.
Providing the edge of living in the heart of Mumbai's developing commercial district and enjoying great connectivity to all parts of the city - be it the Bandra-Worli Sea Link or the International and Domestic Airports, each of which is less than 20 minutes away - Kalpataru Sparkle offers great locational advantages to its residents. Kalpataru Sparkle also offers a luxury lifestyle to its residents, with each of the 3, 4, and 5.5 bedroom apartments featuring wide decks overlooking the common deck on the southern side and the MIG cricket club to the north. This common deck forms the heart of the complex, including such amenities as a clubhouse with a world-class gymnasium, a large swimming pool and a toddlers' pool ringed by spacious pool decks, a spa, a multi-function party lounge, a landscaped garden with children's play area designed by international architects, and a peaceful alcove. The recreational areas are set amid lush greenery, and within easy reach of ramps and toilets designed to ensure comfortable access to the elderly and the disabled. The sound of flowing water from the water features at the entrance provides a soothing backdrop to this area; the clubhouse - with its wrap-around form complimenting the design of the towers, and the cantilevered gymnasium overlooking the pool - becomes the highlight of this shared space.
The complex prioritizes sustainability through the provision of on-site sewage treatment plants, rainwater harvesting tanks, and LED tanks. It has, consequently, been pre-certified with an IGBC Platinum rating and a LEED certification. Within the homes, floor-to-ceiling windows opening into balconies ringed by glass-railings soften the transition between the indoors and the outdoors and provide each home with ample natural light. Furthermore, with each home equipped with scalable automation systems, and only four apartments per floor - catered to by three elevators, reducing the waiting time to 43.9 seconds - privacy and convenience of the residents has been prioritized at each step of the way.
With a seamlessly integrated palette of spatial elements, Kalpataru Sparkle provides its residents luxury amid unparalleled serenity, becoming an excellent choice for homeowners seeking to upgrade their lifestyles. Its unmissable solid white frame accentuates the Bandra skyline, and the crown of the towers - lit up at night - transforms the complex into a spectacular structure.
