The Chintels Corporate Park is conceived as a boutique office complex where efficiency meets clean and contemporary aesthetics to create a landmark office building in the suburban commercial hub of Gurgaon. The project is visible along a flight descent and is designed to be iconic and distinctive through its form. As one moves down from the Dwarka express line of the Delhi airport, the crown is witnessed along with the rhythmic stepping of the green terraces.
Anticipated as a green office building with a series of stepped terraces starting from the human scale at the ground floor roof up to the 6th floor, the terraces at the 6th floor transform into large deck balconies until the 8th floor and eventually leading to becoming large terraced lawns that go up to the 12th floor; creating a sharp tall front corner that becomes the crown of this very elegant structure.
Designed with an intention of moving away from the typical office block morphology of closed box environments, these offices are planned with garden terraces, with little connection to the outside world, so that the people can experience the joy of outdoor spaces and use them as break-out spaces to refresh themselves. Despite the odd-shaped, trapezoidal site, the terraces and the built mass converge together as a singular composition, manifesting itself as an efficient workplace solution. The rectangular and triangular volumes at the front and the side are merged in a clean sweep, creating an illusion of a much larger building while diffusing the distinction between the front and the side.
