Puraniks Tokyo Bay
A home is not a mere structure of walls, ceilings and doors. It's someone's abode, a world that makes its residents feel happy and special. But how does a home make us feel that way? How far do the boundaries of a home stretch? Is home just a concrete space? To find the answers to these questions
we studied different cultures and lifestyles around the world. And we found our answers in the land of the Rising Sun.
In Japan, the Zen philosophy believes that a house is an extension of its surroundings. The idea of bringing serenity and relaxation to every aspect of one's lifestyle is reflected in everyday Japanese traditions, surroundings, arts and architecture. This philosophy inspired us to design our Japanese themed project.
Welcome to Tokyo Bay, where the chaos and stress of the urban life withers out and gives way to a more peaceful Zen approach to life with an edge of minimalistic elegance.
The importance of open space is greatly stressed upon in the Japanese traditions. Which is why when you enter Tokyo Bay, you are greeted by manicured green lawns and gardens.
These are not just patches of greenery. In fact, every garden has a specific theme like fire, water, etc. It is an attempt to bring the elements of nature closer to you.
Greeting someone with love is an age old Japanese tradition. And you are greeted the same way at the gates of Tokyo Bay. When a guest walks in through the majestic temple arch, modeled after the Torii of the Shinto Shrine, it marks the transition from the profane to the sacred. With such an auspicious entry point, rest assured the entire experience is devoid of any negativity.
While the gate arch gives you a glimpse of the Japanese theme, step into an apartment to discover how Japanese architecture introduces you to a completely new way of living. To let the calming effect of your surroundings flow into your home, our designers have built a Japanese style Courtyard inside the apartment. It's a peaceful, cosy space that lets you connect with nature without leaving the comfort of your apartment. It brings in natural light through its glass windows and illuminates the room with a positive energy.
Zen is a feeling that is different for everyone and you have to experience it yourself. The best place to do that is the Zen Garden, which has charming bridges built over the manicured raked gravel. Numerous hanging lanterns suspended from the trees light up this garden once the sun sets. Plants, shrubs and grass form a green cover that assumes different shapes and forms. It's the perfect setting to find inner peace.
The Japanese Japanese follow a very active lifestyle which is vital for complete wellness. Now, you too can adopt a healthy routine with numerous activities on offer at Tokyo Bay. Take a dip in the azure waters of our swimming pool or hit the gym at the Clubhouse.
What's more, we also have a dedicated contemplation zone where you can choose between Yoga and
Meditation to visit your spiritual side.
The Japanese have a penchant for all things spectacular. And the Fire Garden is an example of just that. It is a magical and sensory experience set within these gardens.
It plays host to a fiery spectacle of blazing flowers, lanterns, sculptures and installations that light up the garden, especially when the sun goes down. Letting you enjoy a gloriously atmospheric feast for the senses.
For an innovation like Tokyo Bay, the setting couldn't have been more idealistic. Nestled away from the chaos of the main city, and set in a green pocket, this residence is a convenient address due to its proximity to Ghodbunder Road.
Ghodbunder Road, with its four lanes, acts like a highway connecting to important destinations like the Western and Eastern Express Highways. What's more, this infrastructure brings the satellite city of Navi Mumbai, too, closer.
This arterial road has turned the location into a bustling destination with some of the best shopping, entertainment and restaurant chains popping up at every juncture along with schools, specialty hospitals and corporate hubs.
