The recreational wing for the Orchid Whitefield residential development underway in Bengaluru, the 15,000 sq ft Fields Club offers a wide mix of amenities.
The design brief of the Fields Club was to create a relaxed vibe, with a nuanced urbane touch to exude a sense of understated elegance. Goyal and Co, the residential developers of Orchid Whitefield project wanted a distinct identity for the development and Studio Lotus was roped in to provide a holistic solution for the interiors and the architectural façade of the Fields Club building.
The design scheme for Fields Club has been developed to speak to the aspirations of young professionals, incorporating a rich visual vocabulary, plush materials and vibrant artworks to appeal to the well-heeled client base. “The built envelope planned by the project architects had predetermined locations for the vertical circulation core as well as the orientation of the larger functions such as the badminton court and the banquets halls. The size and configuration of these elements, especially the centrally-placed staircase, created significant zoning constraints that shaped the emergent design solution which was subsequently developed to ensure correspondence of scale between each programmatic requirement and the larger scheme. The second guiding principle for the design scheme was the creation of an intuitive flow and engaging interconnections between the various spaces, in order to curate a holistic leisure experience,” says Ankur Choksi, Design Principal, Studio Lotus.
