Client Brief:

● Total compliance to vastu norms. Reception in North-East Corner; Dining in South East corner and Directors in South – West Corner.
● Construction cost along with interior should be in range of 1800 – 2000 Rs/ Sq.Ft.
● Initially they were looking for a pre-fabricated building & later during the course of plan finalisation it was decided to go for RCC frame structure.

The Challenge:

● To create a comfortable working environment without air-conditioning.
● To establish a design vocabulary that was simple enough to execute within the budget and yet strong enough to enhance working environs.
● Integrate structure, services & the interiors to minimize duplication and wastage of resources.
● Provides for glare free / heat free natural day lighting for interior spaces.

Our Response:

● Accommodate the client requirements in two bays of work areas 25’-0” x 110’-0” connected by utility & circulation areas & separated by a courtyard within.
● Introduce RCC slab with punctures covered with glass skylight & roof ventilating fans over the courtyard to ensure ample light & ventilation.
● Introduced greens inside to create a feel of working within a garden.
● Brought all services on the external face & covered them with corrugated cement sheet fascia – which also served for weather protection.
● In Interiors too we discarded unnecessary elements, used glazed partitions & minimal variations to create a feel of a “single space” & accentuate the architectural volume.
