Mumbai Esplanade at Mumbai, Maharastra, by Somaya & Kalappa Consultants Pvt. Ltd.

The Mumbai Esplanade is a significant civic improvement project connecting the city’s open spaces with train stations and business/cultural districts; it creates a single contiguous landscaped area that links some of the city centre’s primary places of interests such as transit employment and commercial nodes. The Mumbai Esplanade will have connected not only the 125 acres of existing parks, but will have added on 51 acres of new, open public space to Mumbai by linking the parks of the district to plazas, train stations and the central business district.

The creation of an urban plaza is the most efficient solution for creating a balance between pedestrian comfort and safety, and smooth flow of automobile traffic. The residual benefit to the citizens of Mumbai is the creation of an open landscape in a city starved of open space. Surrounding the Cooperage Ground, Azad, Cross and Oval Maidans, a part of the Mumbai Esplanade will incorporate a 1 meter raised platform which will allow unobstructed views of the grand heritage structures overlooking the maidans. Links to the Gateway of India and the Museum district will allow contiguous flow to Churchgate and C. Shivaji Terminus. The distinct historic district of Mumbai will be preserved and celebrated; making it open for Mumbaikars and tourists to enjoy this beautiful environment. Mumbai Esplanade seeks to give citizens the opportunity to reconnect with this port-city, so rich in history and significance

The Principal Architect, Dinesh Panwar beautifully formulated the brief into thoughts forming spaces. He believes the design should be for the client more than an ornamented medallion for the architect, he designed the building such that the built mass is not over powering keeping the foot print low, also keeping the building form subtle such that the sculpture stands out in front of the building and there is no clash of interests.

An inherent aspect of Guru Ravi-das’s teachings lead to Simran. The act of realization and remembrance which connects one’s Mind and Body to the higher level of spirituality. Thus, creating the trinity of life, Mind, Body and Soul, as one. The triangle becomes the symbol of our higher connection, and also the wholesome process of Simran.
