This redevelopment project, located in the heart of the city intends to create a strong character in the prominent urban context. The design reinterprets traditional architecture to render a contemporary language to this site, making it a unique landmark. The façade strategy attempts to enhance the street presence of the office and residential building distinctively.

The residential building has a unique blend of Art deco styles, traditional elements and climate responsive façade which reminds one of buildings in the post-colonial phase in Kolkata.

Diversely, the use of Terracotta as a material for the office building gives it an earthy yet contemporary appearance as it amalgamates with the protruding glass edifice.
