Helix is an iconic residential tower that allows one splendid and unobstructed views of the sunrise and sunset. Garden apartments with planters running all along the periphery of the balcony surround the apartments, and a protruding verandah allows fantastic sky views. Also, the extended verandahs stagger helically as we move upwards along the tower creating a double helix that envelope the tower.
The experiential journey from the entrance security area to the ground level foyer is intriguing, much like the slow unpeeling of an onion. The theme reflects at all levels, including the cascading pool near the entrance. The pleasant, soothing sound of water welcomes you as one approaches the foyer. The apartments start at the fifth floor leaving only an atomized lift, stairs and service core at the center. This leaves us with many volumes enabling us to create a dramatic and experientially rich entrance foyer that dissolves the contrast between indoor and outdoor spaces, at the same time enriching the foyer with luxurious amenities. The fourth floor accommodates a feature opulent clubhouse that opens out onto the spiraling down pool deck.
The top five floors of the tower are also kept for services and recreational activities. The architectural design has sought inspiration from the principles of life and their correlation with habitats to arrive at the design for this new paradigm in vertical living in consonance with nature. All life must be dynamic with energy flowing smoothly through the living entities.
