Inspired by nature as a driving force, the name Botanica was conceived for the lavish development which is like a serene green oasis in the heart of south Delhi. The biomass of the periphery green is intensified by accommodating 4 ft deep planters that are 8-10 ft. high along the boundary.
The architectural visual character of Botanica also plays out the nature theme at several levels. All the balconies are staggered, creating playful double height volumes as opposed to stacked balconies with minor cosmetic tweaks. Stone frescos mimicking the traditional leaf pattern adorn the upper levels of the building. The whole composition reads as a combination of tall stark surfaces of textured stone cut horizontally with staggered balconies that resemble hovering planes of timber and crowned with a floating sheet of stone that binds the whole into one composition of stone, timber and glass nestled within a serene oasis of greens!!
