Symphony for TATA HOUSING

Somaya and Kalappa as Architects

The odd shaped plot and severe setback requirements left us with a long, narrow strip of usable land for the stilt plus a twelve storey building which was to house 192 apartments. Symphony went beyond the isolated building designs prevelant in Mumbai at the time and was created based on the international condominium concept that included a clubhouse and a swimming pool. Balconies of various depths and heights create interesting forms and planes on the façade, further accentuated by bright coloured tile cladding. An independent sculptural wall at the ground floor level emphasizes the four entrances. The sculptural elevation creates visual interest and breaks the length of the building. The swimming pool and clubhouse are a graphic and vibrant part of the complex.
