The firm started in Feb, 2009 specializing in Architecture, Interiors and Landscape design.

Philosophy

“We try not to rediscover the wheel with every new project, thereby opening up an array of possibilities when it comes down to the aesthetic and functionality of a space. All problems are local, all solutions are local. Design however must look outwards and forward.”

Client’s Brief

The client’s brief was to create a youthfu interactive social space for 90-100 people with a partly indoor bar.

Architect’s Intake

To plan all the major functions along the main axis in a way that furniture could be moved and become a dance floor. To add mezzanine floor to accommodate more people.

Challenges

The floor plate was relatively small for the client’s requirements. 1 he structure of the building is flat slab in its design, thereby there were several structural challenges to be addressed to achieve the designed floor plate.

Benefits

The space is located on the 3rd floor of T. building, visibility was a utmost and key factor. This is addressed by planning out the cabanas aptly so that they not only work as a perfect interior setting but also adds upto the facade uplift.

All the outdoor structural elements are stitched together with a sleek pergola and customised FRP hanging lights to draw visibility.
