Part of the Max India enterprise, Antara in Dehradun is a first-of-its-kind senior living community that bases the premise of its design on a progressive approach to community building.

Studio Lotus's key interior approach for the Clubhouse has been to integrate programmatic requirements with a restrained design vocabulary that infuses a <rt-red>home-like warmth and intimacy, in divergence from typical retirement homes that are almost sterile in nature.<rt-red>

Keeping a minimal shell, the interior has been populated with a timeless palette of materials, furniture, lighting and curated art to articulate a sense of place-making and familiarity. Large panels of architectural glazing have been carefully left free in most spaces <rt-red>to osmose the outdoors into the interiors, enhancing its serenity by maximising the natural beauty of the location.<rt-red>

Manifesting a living room-like shared space, the Lobby provides an <rt-red>intimate arrival experience for the residents and guests, and acts as a node for the activity zones and F&B spaces around.<rt-red>

The Dining area has been divided into multiple and distinct zones—consisting of indoor dining spaces, semi-outdoor verandah seating, a community kitchen and a private dining room interconnected by means of large, folding, mild steel doors. Inspired from classic Art Deco influences, the Bar has been designed as an exclusive <rt-red>go-to space; along with the Dining Area and the activity zones, the Bar opens to stunning views of the Dehradun valley though a glazed facade along the building periphery, which seamlessly blends the inside and the outside experiences.<rt-red>

The Clubhouse also houses a dedicated wellness zone that includes a spa, a gymnasium, a swimming pool and a landscaped yoga pavilion. <rt-red>There has been a deliberate attempt to ensure that there are no dramatic shifts between spaces in the design language, to keep it visually comfortable for the aged eye.<rt-red>
