HIDCO vertical city
Location: Fintech Hub, CBD, New Town, Kolkata
Site Area: 4.0 Acres
Built-up Area: 73,500 Sq.m
Status: 2nd Winning Entry in the Design Competition
This was an architectural design solution for the proposed iconic building at the central business district of New Town, Kolkata. The project brief was to accommodate all major usage of a city such as dwelling units, hotel rooms, office spaces & retail spaces in one single vertical iconic tower. This futuristic built form was envisioned as a response to the project brief while keeping the flexibility for interchangeable ratios of different user groups to address any kind of change in market dynamics in terms of requirement for a particular use over the other. The stepped terraces, one of the most prominent features of the building, were provided to create a geometric configuration that exalts the connection between human, built and natural environment.
