JINESHWAR CONSTRUCTIONS - MAMULPET
Located in Mamulpet, a quaint, congested, commercial hub of central Bangalore. A area with narrow roads and buzzing with high volume activity all the day long. The surrounding buildings have no architectural typology; in general, the buildings are organic in nature with stereotype facades. A.J Architects have taken a bold step to mark a new and modern skyline for the surrounding area. This building stands out like “Oasis in the desert”.
The structure is Ground plus six storey. The layout on the lower three floors are planned for creating smaller stores and the upper floors are for office space.
Sustainable design is the core aspect for design. The direct harsh sun rays on the west facade is minimized by creating additional projecting surfaces and creating void between the wall. The varying depths of these projections further help the sun rays to be cut at an angle. We are able to reduce the inside ambient temperature by about 2 degrees centigrade. These projected surfaces, have been adorned with curvilinear pattern with CNC cut design to add to the aesthetics.
The projected area on the façades are treated with 3m x 1m and 3mm thick tile panels. The staturio marble finish tiles adds to the grandeur of the façade. The cove lights behind the projected panels highlights the building. The small congested roads, posed huge challenges in erecting the big sized sheets and also creating the desired pattern on the façade. The curvilinear geometrical intricate design on the façade is achieved with CNC cutting of the panels.
