Organic Orientation

Members only Club at Crescent Parc, Gurgaon, is the hub and life of the community. Unique in its visual appeal and offerings, the club is one-of-its-kinds in the region. Taking cue from nature, the club is an organic, free flowing form which blends with its green environs. Resting gently on vast 7-acre greens, the club has a mesmerizing appeal which carries the vision from one end to the other uninterruptedly. It rises gradually from the ground, as if it were but a part of it.

Its green roof starting from the lawns itself is an accessible experience apart from being sustainable in character. The green roof will keep the built mass cooler in the summers and reduce air-conditioning costs. Part of the sloping green roof has been planned as an amphitheatre without having to alter the ground profile. The parapets alongside the green roof have been so shaped giving the structure an aerodynamic appeal.

The offerings of the club are vast and varied thereby making it the largest residential community club in the region. Approachable from an impressive retail piazza, the club and the banquets have independent drop-offs from a drive-in transitional court. Separate entrance lobbies segregate the guests of the club from the banquet guests.

The club offers a grand double height lobby overlooking the club greens and the pool deck. The guests can satiate their taste buds in a fine dining restaurant or simply sip a quiet drink in the ambience of a bar. The active zone includes a fully equipped gym, indoor games room, squash to pump up the adrenalin and an indoor heated pool with support infrastructure. The passive zone offers a reading room-cum-library.

An outdoor pool for swimming laps or leisure swim is alongside a kid’s pool with a timber deck and ample seating area. The amphitheatre will allow cultural interaction. Outdoor activities include tennis and badminton courts, skating park, cycling track, jogging trail, kids play area, golf putting greens, etc. All of these activities are cohesively entwined with a generous spread of manicured greens, a dense forest, seating pavilions and water features.
