Have a Home on the ‘Clouds’ in Kolkata’s “Atmosphere”




The Indian luxury real estate is booming these days with some great works of architecture coming up. The best and most expensive example is Mukesh Ambani’s 27-floor personal home “Antilia” in Mumbai. Another great specimen is being developed by the Forum Group in Kolkata. Called “Atmosphere,” it is a 550-crore luxury residential condominium project whose most picturesque feature is “Deya,” (means cloud in Bengali), a structure joining the twin towers of the building.

Designed by the Singapore based Arc Studio, it is like a hanging sculpture at a height of 500 feet. Deya will be 320 feet in width, with 55,000 square feet of usable space and will have a silver lining featuring 15,000 kinetic discs on its surface to keep it glowing. It will take approximately INR 100 crores to build just this structure.


Upon construction, it will also become one of the most expensive clubs in India, featuring several swimming pools, a gym, a spa, a few squash courts and a badminton court, a meandering jogging track, a mini cinema theatre, open-air party deck, an amphitheatre, and multiple lounges and spaces for smaller gatherings. Only 80 families will get to live in this magnificent condominium. Construction on the Atmosphere will start from mid March 2011 and will take around 30 months to complete.

PROJECT INFORMATION

This thread has not been updated for quite some time. Adding the details of the project.

Location: E M Bypass, next to Science City
Category: Residential Skyvillas
Developer: Forum Projects
Architects: Arc Studio, Singapore & Edifice Consultants
Launched: 2011
Status: Pilling work has been completed. The twin towers have risen to 4th level.
Project Details:
Being built on 3 acres of land, Atmosphere is a Rs 550 cr project & an attempt at redefining the term “luxury living”. Atmosphere consists of 2 towers of effectively 39 levels, 500 ft high (152.4 m), 165 ft apart. These towers comprise of 80 villas stacked on top of each other. Ranging in size from 6000 sft to 8750 sft, these villas include both Single Floor Villas and Double Floor Villas. The Outer wing of each tower will house the Double Floor Villas (32 nos, 16 in each tower) while the Inner wing will house the Single Floor ones (48 nos, 24 in each tower). To ensure that all the villas have a great view, the lowest villa begins at the 5th level. Thus the residential stretch occupies till 36th level.

Hanging between the two towers (above the Inner wing) at a height of 400 ft. is "Deya". This suspended structure, a “floating cloud sculpture”, which will be lit up by LED lamps at night and will have a ‘silver lining’ with 15,000 kinetic discs shimmering on its surface, is not just a green roof. Spread over 55,000 sq ft, and spanning across 4 levels, this residents’ club will be the most exclusive club in the country, with only the 80 families that live here as its members. Apart from being an object of art, Deya will house every leisurely activity and recreational facility that one could want attached to one’s home, from multigym, spas, and swimming pools, to party decks, conference rooms and a movie theatre! What’s more there’s even a squash court and a virtual golf course at that height!
