  5. 5. ORIENTATION ▪ In Mumbai, buildings are ideally orientated east-west to catch the prevailing sea-breezes, and views out to the Arabian Sea on one side and the harbour on the other: the same directions as the hot afternoon sun and heavy monsoon rains. ▪ Old bungalows solved these problems by wrapping a protective layer of verandas ▪ Kanchanjunga apartments are located south-west.
  6. 6. ORIENTATION
  7. 7. INNOVATION ▪ Interlock of four different apartment typologies varying from 3 to 6 bedrooms each. ▪ Smaller displacements of levels. ▪ Differentiated between the external earth filled terraces and the internal elevated living volumes. ▪ Effectively shield these high rise units from the effects of both the sun and monsoon rains. ▪ Achieved by providing the tower with relatively deep, garden verandas, suspended in the air.
  8. 8. INNOVATION
  9. 9. INNOVATION ▪ The building is a 32 story reinforced concrete structure with 6.3m cantilevered open terraces. ▪ The central core is composed of lifts and provides the main structural element for resisting lateral loads. ▪ The central core was constructed ahead of the main structure by slip method of construction.
