Koramangala is known to be a concrete jungle in more ways than one. The grey spreads on in every direction; but inside it lies a living, breathing ecosphere so green that it could be a jungle in itself.
Koramangala Social is a stab at sustainable architecture and a product of the mass-realization of Bangaloreans that their city’s green lungs have seen better days. This, paired with the Japanese concept of Shinrin-Yoku, that promotes the health benefits of spending time under the canopy of a living forest, formed the bedrock of Koramangala Social’s design.
Designed to be a café-slash-co-working space, the lush green vegetation offers driven individuals the natural healing and de-stressing benefits of nature, indoors – with Wi-Fi and beer to boot. From the floor you walk on, to the high greenhouse styled glass ceiling, the space echoes the outdoors and the green earth. In the truest of senses, Koramangala Social’s unique interiors give you a feeling that nature has overrun the space.
To give the residents of Bangalore their green lungs back, #KoramangalaSocial aims to create a space that is calm, inspiring and revitalizing in the fullest.
