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.
