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 SHRIRAM LUXOR, HENNUR, BANGALORE

Location: The location near the ORR, Hebbal ring road and Manyata Tech Park makes Shriram Luxor very attractive to the IT crowd. Moreover, it is close to MG road, schools, tech parks, hospitals and the Airport.

Resale Value: Sriram Luxor is good for investment and will have good resale value because of it’s excellent location and also because it is a Shriram project and Shriram Group is quite well known all over India.

Appearance: The elevation of the G+13 structure has been made interesting with some blocking and massing unlike most multi-storey buildings which tend to be repetitive and boring.

Open area: Being a multi-storey project, Shriram Luxor has vast open area. So most of the flats will get ample light and ventilation.

Flat entrance: The entrances to the flats in all the towers are not from a dingy corridor. They get direct light and ventilation from the outside. 

Foyer: Though the axonometric view of the 2-bed does not show a foyer, the floor plans indicate one. So I am assuming that all the flats have foyers which are advantageous as they serve as  ‘pause’ spaces as one enters the apartment. Also they are a useful place to keep the footwear.

Room Sizes: The bedrooms, living, kitchen and toilets are very comfortably sized even in the two-bedroom units. See my post on Bedroom sizes in Design of a Bedroom, design of a Kitchen.

Utility provision: A separate utility has been provided, attached to the Kitchen.

NEGATIVES OF SHRIRAM LUXOR, HENNUR, BANGALORE

Cramped arrangement: About a quarter of the units are facing internal courtyards and other blocks. They do not have an external view.

Dining: In most of the apartments, the dining rooms and in some cases the living rooms do not get direct light. Though the sizes of the dining rooms are okay, they can be cramped since they serve as passage ways to the rest of the rooms. The bedroom and study doors open right into the dining and once the dining table is placed, it becomes quite tight to enter or exit the bedroom especially if the dining chairs are pulled out and people are sitting at the table.

Bedrooms: In the 2-bed units , the bedroom doors are opening against wardrobes. This can cause damage to the wardrobes and it is quite difficult to access the wardrobes behind the door unless it is kept closed.

All the 3-Bed-units have three toilets: In my opinion, there should have been 3-bed 2-toilet apartment options as 2 toilets are sufficient for a family of 4 or 5 and is advantageous as the super-built-up area of such an apartment is reduced by 150 to 200 sft. There are many people who want a 3-bed unit but cannot afford it because of the price which is in direct proportion to the super-built up area.

Lobby: A lobby before a toilet is good as bedroom and toilet doors can open from this space instead of from other rooms. But when the lobby becomes disproportionately big as in some of the 2 + study units,  they are just a waste of space and it all adds up in the built-up area. So effectively you are paying for wasted space.

Utility: is quite narrow at 4′ while the balcony is quite wide. It would have been preferable if 6″ to 1′ was subtracted from the balcony and added to the utility.

This is my unbiased review of Shriram Luxor at Hennur, Bangalore. The location is good and the resale value will be good. I liked the overall layout, design and elevation. Moreover, the rooms are comfortably sized and so I will give it a rating of 7.3 out of 10.
