Argus is a high end residential tower with unprecedented architectural character, rests on the most centralized location in the entire urban fabric of Jaipur. Alongside the 48m wide Tonk road, major arterial corridor running through the entire city, makes the property highly approachable from all the major focal points of the city.


The high value land parcel enjoys the views to the majestic hill rage of Aravalis to the east and panoramic urban sprawl to the west, was briefed to have the most iconic built mass and have the luxury redefined addressing the post 2000s sudden surge of development and economic growth in the construction industry. With the concept of creating an extrovert tower with volumetric play in architectural language, the 64 luxurious, 3 and 4bhk units ranging from 3000-4000sqft. are knit up on a regular grid changing orientation on every 3 floors keeping their service shafts and cores intact to produce an immensely interesting and awe inspiring 17 storey tower, responsive to wind flow and sun path. The building hence has mega green terraces on various levels making a mark in the city’s skyline, enjoying the picturesque surrounding views.
The unique volumetric play allows the units to open up on all the four sides and wind flow through the greens and pool spirals along the building keeping it naturally cool and ventilated, for the uniqueness and highly environmental sustainable design, the building enjoys the title of LEED Platinum rated green building.


The lavishly designed units have an attached home office, with some having private mega green terraces of about 600-1000 sqft. The ninth floor club houses an infinity pool with glass edge has 3 floors height cleared above it to give an open and grand feeling, also the similar volume green yoga deck is planned and landscaped to be a serene and silent escape within the urban fold. Suiting the very particular needs of the inmates this tower also houses a grand double height entrance lobby, VIP waiting, central security room, reprographics, party hall, creche and a huge business center and delicatessen with the dedicated area of 2500sqft. in each. The structural complexity that was incorporated while the units transit orientation and column-less terraces were introduced also makes the building an engineering marvel, and the very first of its kind in the city.
