Kohinoor Mixed-use Development

Kohinoor Mixed-use Development


As part of an international design competition, Perkins Eastman envisioned a sustainable, greener addition to the Mumbai skyline. As one of five international architecture firms invited by Kohinoor CTNL Infrastructure Co. Ltd. to participate, Perkins Eastman submitted two bold approaches—one, a singular 33-story high-rise tower and two-story retail base; the other, a low- and mid-rise two-building scheme. Each is a visionary catalyst for smart, green urban development that establishes an iconic sense of place amid juxtapositions of traditional and modern India. Both schemes incorporate sustainable elements to create an indoor environment that is healthy to occupy and cost-effective to operate, utilizing intelligent façade design, harnessing alternative energies, harvesting and recycling rainwater, and incorporating smart technologies such as solar chimneys and abundant façade plantings to filter and improve air quality. In each, colored glass and richly hued terracotta contrast with cool sleek aluminum elements amid verdant landscaping. Both schemes utilize a bright and energizing palette of materials that integrate the colorful aspects of Indian culture with an unwavering commitment to a more sustainable environment.
