Concur Studio – An eccentrically designed workspace

Planned according to Vastu standards, Concur is a workplace designed with a distinctive geometric structure and realistic prints. Believing, in the state-of-the-art norms, the Principal architect’s cabin has been made of leather panels on the roof, a vast with a metal cut world guide as the backdrop; natural marble on the flooring, and a realistic print of Berlin’s Stadium, alongside a dazzling mosaic example over the triangular texture embellish the territory.

The functional zone in the studio is innovatively planned with particular straight workstations and the roof is tastefully structured, like the RCC beams on the ceiling are decorated with antique architectural newspaper cutouts, the library follows the concept of Open Library where you can coy up in the bookshelves and sit head on head with the books and indulge yourself in dynamic hues on the padded seats with lights.

Township project – A panorama of elegant luxury

The ingenious planning behind this project is exhibited in each and every element. The perfectly spread landscapes are sure to let fresh air roam around in the wide open spaces and soothe your senses. The majestic grand entrance is a perfect reflection of an affluent lifestyle that’s hidden behind it. The spaces in and around are creatively conceptualized to give a matchless way of living. Wide concrete roads are spread across major pathways of the project.

Surrounded by plants and landscapes, the Township remains a pollution-free society thanks to its sustainable design. Spread across 14 acres on the Daldal Seoni Road Raipur, Chhattisgarh, India, this project is a township with several magnificent Villas, Row Houses, a Club House, Temple, Solar Garden, Landscape Gardens, Sports Arenas, and much more.

Alternating landscaped terraces act as community break-out spaces. These create varied experiences and promote social interactions and community activities and interlinking corridors, extending the streetscape beyond the ground plane to higher levels of the building. Thus, this brings the street character into the building.

The development plan envisions various unit types and modules for different workforce sections as well as necessary amenities, play areas, infrastructure, and open spaces. Additionally, the project demonstrates a high-standard, sustainable quality of life amongst various sections of users.

 

“The 4 major green landscape pockets in the site plan have different landscaping elements keeping in mind the hot and tropical climate of Raipur”, confirms Ar. Sheware.
