NXT Residences was provided as a challenge by the Client to locate two highrise residential towers within an outdoor street mail – NeoMall. The mall itself took reference from the traditions of street retail in Bangalore. Inserting two highrise towers into the mall is unusual due to the fire and planning codes in Bangalore.
The solution elevates the arrival/lobby, apartments and recreational amenities above a public plaza. The soaring towers leaving the ground space to the public and opening a public plaza to connect the mall streets to the surrounding neighbourhood.
The apartments challenged the market norm and were offered as small but flexible units offering buyers the opportunity to own airpace for future apartment expansion or a built loft. Flexible wall construction offered residents the chance to create their own space and to stamp their own individuality on their home.
