It also has a vertical extension to the central street that connects to the central cultural plaza. The tower has a continuous green eco-infrastructure at the north façade. In other words, it has climbers ascending up the tower through green ramps from the basement to the roof. The internal typical office spaces have large span floor beams to eliminate any in-between columns.

DETAILS

Built in the year 2000, with the advent of new millennium, this 18-storied landmark office complex was a joint venture between Unitech, New Delhi and Singapore Consortium. Signature Tower is located in Gurugram, along the Delhi-Jaipur National highway. This is one of the first buildings in India to incorporate advanced curtain-glazing systems and BMS facilities like, energy management in security, billing system, car parking management facilities etc. Upon its completion, Signature Tower started a trend of glass clad corporate buildings in Gurugram, and was a precursor to Cyber City- the IT hub of this satellite city. The Signature Tower at WTC Manesar is an iconic structure and a landmark in itself.

OVERVIEW

World Trade Center Manesar – India’s First Mainstream Green Office Complex and is also the ‘World’s Best Office Development’ as recognized by the IPA Awards in association with CNBC. Traditional Indian terraced spaces have been denoted by overlapping rectangular forms, while the semicircular curved façade depicts the contemporary commercial architectural style of Singapore. Through the sculpting of its volume and the play of mass and void, we created a 100 ft.x 60 ft. urban window- a gateway to the emerging city of Gurugram. The dynamic curved façade echoes the movement along the adjoining highway and the changing moods of the sky.
