Turner House is a landmark mixed-use office building in the heart of Bandra, Mumbai’s most celebrated cultural neighbourhood. The development includes 14 floors of ‘boutique’ office suites above three levels of prestigious retail space which incorporates the part re-building of an existing 19th century historic bungalow.
The framed masonry vertical composition of slender columns and tapered horizontal brise-soleil reference the stonework filigree of the distinctive Indian gothic architecture of Bandra and central Mumbai. The accentuated façade modelling with deep fenestration reveals, provides vital shading to the upper office floors.
The accentuated verticality of the tower acts as a distinctive counter point, punctuating the verdant tree canopy – a dominant landscape characteristic of Bandra’s Golden Mile.
The lower three floors of the building are designed to provide luxury retail facilities as well as a gym, café and screening room. Developer Raiaskaran and respected gallery DAG have collaborated to display Indian fine art throughout the building through temporary exhibitions and artist collaborations.
The remaining floors provide flexible workspace and with minimal use of internal columns, maximise opportunities to deliver the contemporary working environments favoured by Mumbai’s new and evolving entrepreneurs. All office space has 360-degree unobstructed city and distant sea views. A double height roof-top sky-garden at the 17th floor also provides panoramic views of the city drawing on the distinctive green character of Bandra.
Achieving a LEED platinum certification for its core and shell construction, the building comes equipped with energy and resource conservation technologies whilst aiming to minimise construction impact.
