Personal Experiences: First India Place
“A lot of love, sweat and detail has gone into this office building, which kept us busy and focused for nearly 3 years as our only project in the late 90s. Not often do we get the opportunity to devote so much time on just one project, and I think it shows. The fundamentals of this building is yet unmatched in my career, a true pioneer of its time!” – Sandeep Roy
First India Place stands with a majestic 80m frontage on Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road, the main commercial artery of Gurgaon. An office complex of approximately 200,000 sqft built-up area, its serene and composed presence makes a huge difference in the otherwise chaotic MG Road. This was also the project in which the principals of Synergy and OneDesign worked together for the first time.
