An ideal home for modern business, Godrej BKC provides 111,000 square meters of state-of-the-art, Class A office space in the financial hub of Mumbai. SOM’s design for the 19-story building creates an open and flexible work environment while accommodating the diverse needs of growing companies.
In designing the building, the project team collaborated with Godrej’s internal design group, GPL Design Studio. Consisting of urban designers, architects, interior designers, environmental planners, and creative personnel, the GPL Design Studio is dedicated to creating successful environments through collaborative design, an approach that resonates with SOM’s ethos.
The project sets a new standard for eco-friendly commercial design in Mumbai. Targeting IGBC (India Green Building Council) LEED® Platinum certification, it incorporates a variety of sustainable features, including an all-glass, high-performance facade that mitigates heat and radiation while providing natural daylight and expansive views. Other green elements include a roof garden, responsible landscaping with native and adaptive species, and energy-efficient equipment. Godrej BKC also utilizes stormwater and recycled water for plumbing, reducing its dependence on municipal and external water sources. Onsite bicycle storage, ports to charge electric vehicles, and preferred carpooling spots encourage eco-friendly commuting.
The front plaza features a sculpture by Subodh Gupta, a contemporary Indian artist. Open to the public, the plaza and sculpture continue a long tradition of incorporating art into SOM-designed projects. The building’s carefully curated public areas, ample open space, and robust service amenities—combined with an ideal location—will make Godrej BKC a highly desirable office address for decades to come.
