Designing India's Tallest Residential Building's Entrance


The entrance of a building is the first thing that people see and interact with. It not only sets the tone for the overall architecture and design of the building but also plays a critical role in ensuring the safety and security of its residents and visitors. In this blog post, we will discuss a project where A1UNICO was approached to design and install an entrance solution for India’s tallest residential building in Mumbai. The entrance gate was required to be both visually appealing and functional, with limited space available. The challenges and solutions that A1UNICO faced during this project will be discussed in detail.


When A1UNICO received the request to design and install an entrance gate for India’s tallest residential building in Mumbai, the team began with a site survey to understand the project’s requirements. It was found that the entrance gate needed to have a clear opening of more than 13 meters, with only 4.5 meters of parking space available. The gate also needed to have automation for the 13 meters opening and be visually appealing while offering security and safety to the residents.


After analyzing the requirements and conducting a thorough site survey, A1UNICO suggested a 4 leaf telescopic gate solution. This design offered a modern and aesthetic look while also catering to the space limitations on the site. To balance the aesthetics and functionality, a telescopic mechanism was added for the gate’s operation.

Creating a gate with such specific requirements was a challenging task that had not been attempted before. A1UNICO had to consider various factors such as weight, durability, strength, and aesthetics while designing the gate. Steel was chosen as the construction material for its durability and strength, and a concealed design was created to ensure that the gate did not take up too much space and blended in seamlessly with the building’s architecture.

The weight of the gate was approximately 3.3 tons, and given this, a 4-ton motor was selected to provide high torque and low speed. The gate’s color was matched with the surrounding wall to ensure that it complemented the building’s architecture and blended in well with the environment.


Safety was of utmost importance while designing the entrance gate for India’s tallest residential building. The gate needed to be safe and secure for the residents and visitors. A1UNICO installed various safety measures to ensure smooth and secure operation. IR beams, pillar light, and audio alarms were installed to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of the residents and visitors.

The gate was designed to operate at a speed of 20 meters/min, ensuring that the flow of traffic in and out of the building was smooth and efficient. A1UNICO ensured that the gate’s operation was smooth and reliable, minimizing the chances of any accidents or malfunctions.


After the design was finalized, the next step was the installation of the gate. The A1UNICO team worked tirelessly to ensure that the installation was smooth and hassle-free. The installation was completed within the stipulated time frame, and the entrance gate was ready for use.


The successful installation of the entrance gate for India’s tallest residential building in Mumbai by A1UNICO showcases the company’s dedication to innovation, quality, and functionality. The team at A1UNICO overcame the challenges of designing and installing a gate that met the specific requirements of the project while ensuring that it was visually appealing, secure, and safe for the residents and visitors.

This project is a testament to the company’s commitment to meeting the unique needs of each client and creating custom solutions that exceed expectations. The entrance gate not only provides a secure and safe environment for the residents but also adds to the aesthetic appeal of the building.
