The project site is located in Gurgaon, India and is located 15km away from Delhi International Airport. The initial concept is to develop four buildings including 3 office towers and a retail block. An iconic office tower complex with high visibility is envisioned. The Office tower shall be 12 stories high, including ground floor, with maximum height of 60m. During our initial design brief meeting with the architects, four primary façade types were identified as a part of the typical towers. The façade elements include Unitized glass curtain wall featuring full height, floor to ceiling glass, minimal vertical sight lines and large horizontal sunshades cantilevered off the face of the primary curtain wall in one wall type. At the termination points of this wall type HOK envisions buttress walls. Wall Type Two (located at segmented curved elevation without sunshades, flat walls including major elevations, end elevations and insets) is comprised of unitized glass curtain wall featuring full height, floor to ceiling glass, minimal vertical sight lines and an expressed horizontal channel feature reveal setting back for the face of the glass 100-150mm. Other façade elements include vertical cantilevered glass fins and point fitting/ hybrid transparent system.
