Bandra Ohm residential tower

Inspired by the symbol Ohm (Ω), Bandra Ohm is a 140m tall residential tower in India, with fluid swimming pools on balconies, designed by world renowned architect James Law of James Law Cybertecture International.

The design of the tower is also inspired by the ripple result generated by water droplets, which is also known as the capillary wave. The ripple effect encourages fluidity that shows in the tower’s construction.

The shape and the ripple pattern can remind one of an abstract representation of the symbol Ohm (Ω). The tower design is trying to recall the essence of the space by creating a large gap in the middle with a special designed clubhouse form. With almost 30 floors of residential units, Bandra Ohm intends to provide a good living setting and experience to the residents.

From the Architect:

The design concept of the tower is inspired by the ripple effect generated by water droplets, which is also known as the capillary wave. The image of the ripple emphasizes fluidity and this idea is reflected in the tower’s design. The outline of the tower demonstrates the fluidity and dynamic nature of the ripple.

The outline and the ripple pattern can be conceived as an abstract representation of the symbol Ohm (Ω). The tower design is trying to recapture the essence of this space by creating a large void in the middle along with a special designed clubhouse form. With approximately 30 storeys of residential units, Bandra Ohm aims to provide a luxurious living environment and experience to the residents.

    Amazing, but for me, a 74 y o ….I would find it cold and not warm and homey enough….it seems almost too futuristic!

    Is he Bandra Ohm residential Tower ever actually going to be constructed? I can find absolutely nothing online about its proposed completion date, its construction status or anything other than the same photos of the model that have been the only real thing about it since it first came to the public eye. IS IT REAL or just a Cool Idea? Why are there no sales offices or info about anything regarding it other than the same old photos and the same old captions? I wanted to include it in my novel, but I can hardly do so, if it does not or will never actually exist. Please let me know the status if you can. Most Appreciative, Ray Gibson

      @Ray Gibson – Nope, it would defy the laws of physics to cantilever that much water weight on each balcony. Multiply that by 4 and multiply that by the number of floors. Jumping into the pool would cause waves of water to fall from a hundred feet. Just consider it a wild fantasy of an architecture design that a kid might develop while in school for fun.

    Nothing is impossible in Engineers life , Somebodies idea to be respected and try to work out how best we can support to bring it real.
