Award Entry

Integrating modern sustainable design features and rotating building sections FXFOWLE’s concept design continues to prove its popularity 

FXFOWLE’s winning design for a competition for a new 60-storey (301 meter) mixed-use tower located in India’s South Mumbai centres on creating a premier international hotel, retail, and residential tower within India’s emerging new economy.

The tower’s rotated form emerges in response to the 3-acre (1.2-hectares) site, the building’s functional requirements, and its mixed-use program that changes with each rotation of the tower. This circulation pattern separates retail, a custom-designed residential-style , world-class hotel and serviced apartments, and long-lease and duplex penthouse condominium apartments within a sustainable network of green roofs and hanging gardens to create a singular, landmark building with panoramic views of South Mumbai and the Arabian Sea.

The design concept for the tower was informed by Mumbai’s climate, the site, and the desire to create distinctive indoor and outdoor spaces with optimum views. Although the project will not be realized, it is designed to have the least possible impact on the environment by integrating current innovative sustainable systems and technologies throughout the building – solar shading, natural ventilation, day lighting, rainwater harvesting, and green interior finishes and materials – to make it one of the greenest skyscrapers in India.
