Grove Towers by 3XN

Grove Towers is a mixed-use development in Mumbai, India and it was designed by the 3XN architectural practice with a scheme referencing the mangrove trees which are present in the region through the shape of two towers converging at the base.

The project hosts retail outlets and there are amenity spaces across the podium. Spreading over a surface of 78000 square meters, the towers contain units which ensure expansive views toward the mangroves to the north and toward the Indian Ocean to the west.

To take care of the environmental strategy of the towers, the designers worked with the 3XN innovation unit called GXN to implement a façade which reduces solar gain and to maximize natural ventilation through the integration of 2500 square meters of vertical gardens which lower the carbon dioxide levels of the city.

The project is already under construction and the work for it is estimated to be finished in three years.
