ARCHITECT’S REVIEW OF SALARPURIA GOLD SUMMIT, HENNUR, BANGALORE:

Since I am an Architect based in Bangalore, I am able to review some of the projects and builders in Bangalore with confidence. These reviews will hopefully help you in making the right decision when planning to buy a flat. My reviews are unbiased and solely based on the merits and demerits of the design of the buildings.

POSITIVES OF SALARPURIA GOLD SUMMIT, HENNUR:

Location: Needless to say the location of this project is it’s USP. Close to schools, tech parks, hospitals and the Airport, you couldn’t ask for a better location. Moreover, the Hennur-Bagalur road has been widened and  is a breeze to drive on.

Appearance: The 33 floor tower is imposing and grand. It stands majestically right on the road and is visually appealing.

View: The view form every flat is to the swimming pool or to the outside landscape or Main road and not to other blocks like in most projects

Rating: Salarpuria Gold Summit has been given a 4 star rating by CRISIL Real Estate Star rating. So if you go by ratings, then this is the one for you.

Room sizes: All the bedroom sizes are good, very comfortable for accommodating the usual bedroom furniture like wardrobes, cot, side tables, writing table/dressing. The bathrooms are a minimum of 6′ in width which is a very comfortable dimension. You can confirm this in my post on Bedroom sizes in Design of a Bedroom.

Living dining: The L shaped living/dining room in  the apartments of Block A and B are good sized have good ventilation and light from both ends and have privacy.

Lobby: All apartments have a entrance lobby which is the size of a small room and bigger than most foyers in similar buildings. It may not really serve any purpose except that it gives you a feel of what to expect in the  rest of the house, size wise.

Kitchen: The corridor style kitchen is very functional and efficient.  You can have more counter space in this type of kitchen arrangement as explained in my post on the design of a Kitchen .

NEGATIVES OF SALARPURIA GOLD SUMMIT:

View: Though all the blocks have good views, the corners of Blocks A1 and B1 are hidden behind the blocks D and C respectively. The A1 and B1 series flats will have at least one bedroom getting mostly the next block in the line of vision.

Space: For the mass of built space, the amount of open, green space is very less.

Lobby: The light to the staircase/lift lobby is only through the staircase and for such tall buildings, it seems a bit less.

Dining room: The dining room in the C2 and D2 series of apartments do not get any light. The dining rooms in the A and B blocks are facing other blocks and have no view.

Balcony: The balconies are narrow, only 4′ in relation with the size of the flat. It is not enough to sit comfortably without feeling a bit cramped. I hope that the railing heights are at least 4′ in such a tall building.

This is my unbiased review of Salarpuria Gold Summit. I actually quite like it, the layout, design and overall appearance. I will give it a rating of 7.5 out of 10.
