Shantiniketan Terrace


The client’s brief on 3rd floor terrace was to have a terrace garden for evening parties for around 40-50 people with a lot of seating and dining spaces. The roof top terrace design has been inspired by Goan & Spanish Beach Resorts. The feel of the terrace has been conceived as a space, transforming one physically and mentally bringing one closer to nature. It is a space created by fusion of modern features, landscape and artwork. The spaces has been defined in two zones with central being the green are and either end being a bar area and deck area.

It is an effort to create ambience to a place of de-stress, a transitional environment transforming one’s senses. Each material and its relationship with its surrounding has been carefully selected and detailed. Lighting at night create a mood which is meant for unwinding and to escape from the everyday humdrum. 90% of the lights used were LED to reduce electric consumption.
