The metal rafters with a wave kind of pattern broken with the trapezoidal boxes impart the bold and brutalist look to the entire façade.
The commercial complex planned in Jigani, an industrial and marble trader’s hub, in the suburbs of Bangalore. The program of the structure was clear in client’s brief. The structure was primarily made with the objective to earn rental income in the fast-growing area and they wanted the lower floor to be used for retail or restaurant and office space in the upper floors. The typology of the structures prevailing in the area are box type industrial shed type. The design team planned to make a building to complement and stand out of the otherwise box type industrial shed look.
The team planned the structure with placing the core of the building on the right-hand side corner of the structure facing the main road. The side road housed the ramp and the secondary entry to the building. We have planned for a bold, contemporary and brutalist façade. Tall windows are planned to allow maximum light to cover the inner space, hence reduce the use of artificial light during day time, which would reduce on the overall carbon footprint. The tall windows are further boxed in trapezoidal concrete boxes to form a play of shadow in the inner space. The metal rafters with a wave kind of pattern broken with the trapezoidal boxes impart the bold and brutalist look to the entire façade.
