  • This project was designed with the Serie Architects team, based in Mumbai and London.

  • At present, the proliferation of curtain walls in fast paced, speculative office buildings has reduced the role of the architect to elevation dressers - the domain of the architect’s role confined to a mere 8-inch depth. Resisting this tendency, the proposal aims to reinterpret the various components that make an elevation, while maintaining the maximum floor area, generated by building to the site boundary.

  • The proposal imagines a modulated skin that performs as a series of balconies, storage spaces, sun-shades and window-cabins. The depth of the skin thus is thickened to six feet to enable balconies, break-out spaces, private cabins and tiered seating for an auditorium.

  • On the base of the block, the same primary modules are differentiated to create outdoor furniture, grass-basins and pavement modules. This promotes the aggregation of specific activities on the deck level according to the positions and densities of the various modules.
