We wanted the benefit of being in a central location, on a main access road to coexist with the benefit of being located within Jayanagar’s mature and planned surroundings. How did we do this? We planned Spire with a distinctive ‘arrowhead’ layout. Basically, two towers of apartments have been placed at a 33º angle and fused at one end, to create a form that resembles an arrowhead. The ‘arrowhead’, so to speak, is pointed towards Jayanagar and away from the main road.
In terms of functionality, the building is split down the middle along the north-south axis. The result of this planning has created a unique Eastern and Western Facade that together make the living experience more desirable.
The eastern facade of the arrowhead that faces the main road holds a plurality of the common areas, amenities, service entrances and utilities. The entire half of the building that faces the main road, acts as a large physical buffer that dramatically mitigates noise percolation towards the Western Elevation where the residences are located.
The western facade is where all the residences are located. By doing this, every single apartment looks on to the well planned and tree covered expanses of Jayanagar.
Each bridge is a double level structure that spans 2 floors. The first bridge connects across the 4th, and 5th floor. The second one connects at the 12th and 13th floor. The topmost bridge fuses the towers at the 20th and 21st floor.
The Lower Level of the walkway is enclosed and glass paneled. This serves as a highly functional, picturesque connect between the two towers. While the Upper Level, is exposed to the sky has seating areas and gardens. Reinforced Glass Railings provide protection as well as an unfettered view from the bridges.
