Sky Gardens

Urban outdoor living

The term ‘bungalow’ originates from the Hindi language as a ‘home in the Bengal style.’ It is a typology that has assumed many forms, evolving originally from a detached, low-rise residence with a wide veranda that provided inhabitants with large outdoor spaces. As bungalows in the sky, Sky Gardens aligns with certain aspects of these historical references.

The 20-storey project is sited within a region of India’s Garden City, Bengaluru, rich in vegetation with uncompromised views of the city.

A key design intent is to integrate landscape with the built form. Each apartment is provided with a private terrace garden that allow rich landscaping. These sky terraces alternate on consecutive floor to create a double-volume outdoor space which dominates the façade.
Sky terraces shift in orientation and provide each apartment with a double-height outdoor space.
Each apartment has its own private lift lobby.
The alternating terraces dominate the façade and support a distinct building identity.

Double-volume outdoor spaces allow light and air to permeate through the whole body of the 5,000sf (465sqm) apartments. As each terrace holds a garden with enough soil to permit rich landscaping, horizontal and vertical lines emerge as the defining feature of the project as a whole – deep terraces provide the space to accommodate soil and the growth of plants, and disengaged structural columns support the additional weight of these terraces.
