Indian architecture has indeed come a long way. It’s been many decades past our independence that Indian architects are finally showing their true talents in many ways possible. Architecture is nothing but an expression of modern art. There are plentiful of designs around the world and in the country that express the desire of shouting out. Indian architecture is no different in displaying such an act.
If we take a look at corporate parks in Mumbai, especially the ones located in SEZs, you will realize the elaborate design that speaks volumes of Indian design potential. In Mumbai, the best place to check out the impressive architecture is at none other than Bandra-Kurla Complex or commonly known by its acronym – BKC. Most of the buildings here have been designed with a specific purpose in mind. In short, it’s purposeful designed evokes awe and one will get impressed with the modern design elements of these buildings.
Residential buildings do not always follow a stringent design norm. The buildings do compromise on their design since they have to accommodate residents in it, so the exterior of these buildings will utilize only the basic of the elements. Has this been a stereotypical view that residential buildings do not like to be elaborately designed? The answer is fortunately yes. There are several townships that prompt us to think otherwise. Although the terms ‘elaborate design’ is not something one would like to associate these buildings with. It still does a pretty good job of deserving it to be called as a landmark. And if it’s attributed as a landmark then the building seldom requires any introduction. One will not require squinting at the thought of making it hard to recognize- credit it to the architectural designs.
Most of the Indians live in either: building complexes, residential towers or townships. Unlike their western counterparts, most Indians do not live in individual houses. Residential complexes and townships depict different design elements. Take for example the design created by Supreme Designs: Their design of their hotels uses the basic elements, none too elaborate nor is it too simple. It depicts precisely what the design wants to convey. If it’s a hotel, it will look like a hotel, if it’s a resort it will look like a resort. The design should speak the idea behind the elements of that distinctive design. For example, Ferrari's are designed with a specific purpose to serve the needs of luxury sport car enthusiast. No one would expect less, Ferrari design represents sports cars should deliver on the speed and comfort the brand depicts. In a much similar way the design of Supreme Design speaks volumes of its purposeful design elements: not so simple, none too elaborate.
