Rajan Goregaoker, Principal Architect and Director (Partner), GA design

Rajan Goregaoker, a 1990 graduate of Sir J J College of Architecture, co-founded the firm GA design in 1999. With an extensive experience in residential and commercial buildings, township projects and interiors of luxury homes and offices in and around Mumbai, Rajan is recognized as one of the leading architects in Mumbai. Associated with some of the region’s most prominent builders in the field of architecture and design, Rajan brings together the design expertise of both architecture and interior design in projects successfully.

In conversation with The Afternoon D&C, Rajan talks about his recently completed project the Sales Office of Regency Anantam.

Tell us a few words about your recently completed project, the Sales Office of Regency Anantam?
Regency Anantam is approximately a 50 Lakhs sft residential development located at Dombivali east. The project comprises of 2bhk and 1bhk apartments of 23 storied buildings. The project is divided into three phases and the first phase consists of seven buildings. Along with the proposed development the entire complex will have 21 buildings in all.

The sales office is around 20,000 sft built up with a grand reception area, sales cabins, conference rooms, the MD cabin and a show flat, the size being in proportion to the magnitude and scale of the residential development.

Conceptually the entire design is non-static and indicates movement and direction, hence the sales cabin area has a marble inlay which has a parametric design which spills out into the reception space. The palette is in shades of grey marble flooring, light and dark veneer and rose gold metal which as a theme continues through-out the office.

What is unique about this project?
The magnitude and scale of the sales office along with cutting edge architectural and interior aesthetics reflect upon the developer’s capacity and commitment in delivering a project of this scale to their customers. The entrance canopy which is 6 metres cantilevered has around 800 custom made LED lights. The interiors are a combination of woodwork, metal work and 3d panel surfaces. Large LED panels display constantly the project status and design. The Sales cabins and show flat are planned strategically for a convenient access to the customers

How important are designs to attract footfalls and make it a successful venture?
Design in any architectural residential project is critical for it to be a successful venture. Practical designing where there is efficient use of space planning is an important aspect. Another important aspect in design is the amenities which are provided by the developer. When a customer is a looking to buy a house, he is looking to probably change and enhance his lifestyle. Large developments like Regency Anantam form community living spaces, these spaces have a life of their own. Social interaction, health and fitness, pollution free environment and a sustainable development which provides cost effective living for the residents are all key elements in good design.

What are the key dynamics driving the design industry?
Today providing a comfortable lifestyle with state of the art facilities for the residents, a sustainable project which brings the cost of living down and an aesthetically smart and pleasing building design are all driving forces in today’s residential market. Sustainable factors such as harvesting water for re-use, using solar energy to cut down electrical cost and using building materials such as performance glass to reduce solar gain are important elements in a well thought of residential development. Lastly amenities provided are constantly changing with the change in lifestyle and are becoming more hi-tech and unique in nature. Developers need to be abreast with these changing times to attract customers in the residential building industry.

Can you describe the design milestones of Regency Anantam?
Regency Anantam is a project which has been designed with the human factor in mind. The project is designed to elevate and enhance the lifestyle of the residential inhabitants. The panning of the layout and the number of buildings are designed so as to create a balance between the density of residents and the open spaces provided. The clubhouse is approximately around 70,000 sft and has all kinds of leisure, fitness and sports activities. Huge gardens and lush green spaces provide a healthy pollution free environment. The buildings are constructed in MFE Formwork technology resulting in a superior aesthetic finish. All rooms of all apartments have balconies providing a sense of openness. Lastly the project will be utilising solar energy and rain water harvesting will provide recycled water, making it a sustainable residential project.
