CUBS Design Stories: Sales office-Stairway to your dream homes!
Some stories are very difficult to pen down. Like they say it’s the journey that counts and not the destination. It was the first for CUBSpaces and definitely a stepping-stone from the regular residential segment. Here was a project we had to bag, a site/sales office: Wildwoods Phase 1 By Manav Group, catering to the mid-segment population. Not often do we get customers who give us a free hand in thinking and designing their space. Always a designers delight to take up such a project. Before we started designing we delved a little deeper to understand how the average urban Indian thinks before buying a home. Thus began our journey.
The burgeoning middle-class segment in India is a very interesting segment. Everyone has aspirations when it’s about moving up the ladder. But aspirations are very subjective. What is aspirational for a middle-class person is very different from what is aspirational for an upper middle class or for that matter even a rich person. A mid-segment person always measures aspiration from a value of money lens. For an average urban Indian aspiration or luxury can never be a trade-off from functionality. They may buy luxury products essentially to maintain a lifestyle. But the intrinsic value of the luxury product is still low for them. Keeping this learning in mind we charted out a storyboard when a potential buyer walks into a sales office. There are many thoughts that run in his mind such as
o Is the development aspirational?
o Is he an honest builder?
o Can I afford it?
o Am I comfortable?
o Will I be taken for care of?
o Is it value for money?
The sales office is always the first checkpoint to influence the decision making for buying a home. Hence it’s important that the sales office answers the above questions. Simply put, a smart sales office must
- Have customer’s journey mapped- from a potential buyer to customer
- Create an environment which is not the only representative of what the development offers but should also be representative of what the customer expects or want to see
Average Indian Traits to consider while designing the space
|Average Indian Do’s and Don’ts||Sales Office requirements|
|Don’t like to be bombarded with too much information||Do not hard sell. Do not start selling in the door|
|Travel with kids everywhere. Even to buy a home||Have a kid’s corner in the office instead of outside to ensure safety|
|Don’t like to take permissions before seating||Your seating should reflect that. Comfortable and welcoming waiting area.|
|Aspirational yet functional||Sales office can be glamorous but not cold and intimidating|
