It all begins with the concept, our decision to deliver dedicated 4 bedroom projects with uniform apartment sizes, comes from a thought of equality within community living. A society where everyone lives in equal-sized units that enjoy the same view and the same amenities and specifications not only draws more compatible people together but also ensures a like-minded community for years to come. With emerging new projects in Pune, Kasturi is changing the face of luxury in a home.
Every aspect of the project is scrutinized from a 100-year perspective. Façade elements, lobbies, common spaces, materials used, interior design, fittings and fitments, overall architecture and finally execution is looked at from a lens of longevity and maintainability. Luxury is not about what meets the eye at that instance of a sales pitch, it’s about the deeper aspects of the lifestyles of the people purchasing it. Many of the luxury projects boast about grand designer lobbies and complicated architectural elements, unfortunately, this approach to luxury is myopic. What happens after 20 or so years when the grand designs start to wear out and look old? And the complicated architectural elements look like remnants of different age and are increasingly difficult to maintain? Kasturi is one of the very few luxury builders in Pune that understands the fact that housing societies more than often don’t have the resources to undergo major civil refurbishments and hence we design our spaces in a style that lingers between functionality, maintainability, modern and minimalistic.
Luxury is not about size! Luxury is a feeling. Small spaces can ‘feel’ big just by treating them differently. Our decision to give corner windows at EON homes, Hinjawadi is just about that. Full height corner windows open up an entire otherwise dead corner of a room, giving it an almost infinity like feel. All our luxury apartments in Pune are designed keeping in mind the sunlight, wind direction, time of day and season of Pune because that is how we all experience our homes. All Kasturi projects in Pune maximize openness to both light and air, almost doubling the ‘perceived carpet area’ of the home.
Unfortunately, the word luxury in the context of real-estate that has become synonymous with expensive projects in upmarket localities. But luxury is more than that. It’s about how actually ‘living’ in the home or the project makes you feel.
Finally, everything else is just the icing on the cake. Details such as central water heating systems, so that you have hot water on the go just like a luxury hotel (new feature added in some of our new projects in Pune), false ceilings and concealed lighting, VRV ductable air conditioning by Diakin, fully furnished bathrooms adorned with the world’s best designed fittings by brands such as Villeroy & Boch, Grohe and Vitra, Italian import prefabricated doors and doorframes, fully furnished imported modular kitchens with appliances from the world’s best brands like Siemens and Miele. Small details like water treatment plants to ensure that drinking water is available in all faucets of your home (just like it is abroad!)
“A Kasturi home doesn’t need an interior designer” – says one of our clients at The Balmoral Estate, Baner. “All homes are designed as beautiful and functional open palettes for you to just place the furniture of your choice and immediately start living!”
All this is a result of the constant need to be ahead of the curb. It’s a culmination of 20 years of striving to be the benchmark of what Luxury should be. From our very first project, we have tried to educate the end-user in what luxury really should be and what they should expect when someone says luxury. And this dedication to delivering quality in luxury has not gone unrecognized. Kasturi has now, for two years in a row, won consecutive 5 stars at the International Property Awards for our various projects, hailing us the flag bearers of luxury not only in our city but in the world.
