Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Area: 0.05 Million Sq.Ft.
Client: 3M Corporation
Project Completed: 1998
3M was desirous of creating an office space which provides a platform to showcase its products and also blend function with corporate appeal. The complex plan geometry suggested a series of interior layouts about a central, sinuous circulation spine, which while projecting the dynamic image of the company, also creates an event of informal shopping/ product access. While a generous, double-volume arrival atrium welcomes the visitor, a 3M ?time capsule?, representing the historiography of the company visually connects the four disparate levels and unifies the different interior spaces. The warmth of the interior is also reflected in the earthly tones and landscaped terraces/balconies at each floor provide relief and direct contact with the outdoors.
