The curious brief

The owner had set requirements for the separation of office spaces and wanted to maintain high ceilings despite heavy beams. They also wanted a clear view of the Narmada from all spaces. Hence structural changes were made, the glass facade was extended toward the river side with the permission of the builder.

The heavy structural beams posed a major challenge to the designers Archis Patel and Tanvi Rajpurohit. “We have merged the arch shaped ceiling to the existing beams so that we don’t compromise on the space height,” says the duo Archis and Tanvi.

Natural light, spatial organisation and transparency was the core of design philosophy. Transparency not just from an aesthetic point of view but also to encourage team building.

The office was designed keeping in mind that the space is for people in the field of mechanical engineering and hence the use of metal and is extremely clever. It possesses a strong thematic language that expresses confidence, reliability and coherent unity.
