News - YOO on the ‘Horizon’ in Bangalore

April 27th 2012

House of Hiranandani, India’s premium real estate developer and has today unveiled a new luxury real estate enclave featuring a development with residences designed by YOO inspired by Starck, bringing high-end living  to Bangalore for the first time.

Signature will comprise three distinct developments bringing the cream of global design talent to India. Horizon, a YOO inspired by Starck project, and Signature Villas, by Patty Mak are both based in Bangalore. Seagull, based in Chennai has been designed by Indian architect, Hafeez Contractor.


With Horizon,  House of Hiranandani has secured the first YOO designed project in  Bangalore, marking the fourth YOO project in India. London-based  property designer firm YOO was co-founded by entrepreneur John Hitchcox  and world-leading designer Philippe Starck. The YOO inspired by Starck  brand is a collaboration between YOO and Starck that combines a rich  tapestry of designs infusing both natural and cultural inspirations.  John Hitchcox has pioneered modern living during 25 years working in the  real estate industry, and YOO is renowned around the globe for its  sophisticated styles and unique public areas that truly enhance a sense  of community among residents.


For its Signature Villas project, House of Hiranandani has invited Patty Mak from Suying Designs  of Singapore to make her first foray into the Indian market. Known for  having a strong sense of intimacy and warmth to her styles – which  extend from ethnic and regal to colonial and contemporary – she has  built up an enviable reputation designing homes for the rich and famous  throughout Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and mainland China. Fusing  Eastern elements into a Western setting with subtlety and intensity,  Patty Mak’s integrated approach to creating exterior and interior  designs will ensure Signature Villas set new standards.

Bathroom Culture

Ms. Neha Hiranandani, Director, House of Hiranandani, said:

“The  tastes of Indian consumers are continuing to evolve and with that  refined palette and an array of different options we are committed not  just to offering the finest quality homes, but designs that will truly  enhance people’s lives. Our partnerships with John Hitchcox’s YOO and  with Patty Mak will ensure we can meet increasing demands from our  customers while offering homes on a par with the best in the world. Our  partnership will add a new dimension to the real estate market in  Chennai and Bangalore and this continue to benefit India for many years  to come.”

Bedroom Culture

John Hitchcox, Chairman, YOO, said:

“Bangalore is one the world’s top entrepreneurial cities, so I am delighted to be  bringing the YOO brand here. These are exciting times for India.  Economic growth is changing the country forever and with that, people  are now seeking a living experience that reflects their life and their  changing tastes. We are committed to improving people’s lives by  offering them fantastic design and the ability to live somewhere that  brings them together with likeminded individuals. Through a mix of  sophisticated luxury and practical innovation, I know that Horizon will  really offer Bangalore the living space it deserves and I am incredibly  excited to be working with House of Hiranandani and hope we can announce  more projects in the near future.”


Horizon marks the fourth YOO designed project in India after YOO Pune, in Pune, and Lodha Fiorenza and Lodha Wadala in Mumbai.
