PROJECT BY DEVANSHI GULATI
Kairos is the home of recreation & wellness, in which there is a series of amenities provided to adults who are the age of forty and above. The concept of this facility is to bring out the notion of nostalgia, and it is up to the guests on how they want to portray their nostalgic experiences. The facility provides guests with a variety of spaces where they can reminisce about what it was like to be a child with no stress on their minds, and to get away from the real world. It is specifically designed for guests who are aged forty and above as they will appreciate a space that is dedicated to their relaxation. The main goal was to design the facility like home, so that the guests feel cozy, comfortable, and ‘at home’ with no responsibilities while partaking in the activities that are offered in the building. The interior of Kairos has a very playful and colourful atmosphere to bring out the concept of nostalgia, as the intent is to make the adults feel like children once again. Kairos means “the perfect, delicate, crucial moment; the fleeting rightness of time and place that creates the opportune atmosphere for action, words, or movement.” Therefore, the main goal of this centre is considered "the perfect, delicate, crucial moment," which is the day that guests join the facility to forget what is on their minds, and focus on the relaxing activities being offered.
