All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy is an aphorism we’ve all grown up with. How about an office that offers equal parts fun and function, a space that leaves you with a sense of wonder whilst serving its purpose to perfection? Shibori, a site office of a real estate development in Gandhinagar designed by co-founders and co-principal designers Snehal Suthar and Bhadri Suthar of tHE gRID Architects ticks all the right boxes as it mirrors the core concepts of their upcoming premium apartment scheme.

The 1,890 sq ft office harnesses natural resources in newfangled demeanours with a conscious integration of biophilic philosophies. Underpinned by a dramatic dance of light and shadow, the structure is a dynamic asset for the company that stands at a major junction flanked by prime educational institutes and hi-tech office buildings transpiring as a landmark for the city.
