The eyes who were fortunate to treasure the hanging gardens of Babylon have thus spoken :
“I have gazed on the walls of impregnable Babylon,
Along which chariots may race,
and on the Zeus by the banks of Alphaeus.
I have seen the Hanging Gardens and the Colossos of Helios,
the great man-made mountains of the lofty pyramids,
and the gigantic tomb of Maussollos.
But when I saw the sacred house of Artemis that towers to the clouds, the others were placed in the shade, for the sun himself has never looked upon its equal outside Olympus.”
This project created a kind shwarmerei at our office which pushed our thoughts to envision its magnanimity to nothing short of Artemis’s residence. Its architecture shall be imposing yet inviting in nature. It shall epitomize the essence of spaces created in biblical magnificent structures yet shall not be anachronistic. It shall create the Paseo’s & vista’s in a mutual harmony with the environment.
The cantilevered terrace’s which bear the skyline of Hyderabad explains its ‘inside out’ philosophy & makes those internal private spaces infinite. The juxtaposition of these terraces creates an art of shiography & redefines the outdoors to indoors. The Approach though a single free standing lift surrounded by water instills a halo to its architecture spirit. The internal gangways, double height corridors & internal courtyard helps to breach the claustrophobic nature of a built environment.
To recapitulate, we present the architecture which shall be envied by many & cherished by your family.
P.S. : Just gave the presentation, Hope we get it :)
