The brief to this project was to represent this office as a leader in the local Indian environment, on computer peripherals, this corporate of Intex Technologies was to be a signature building, a showcase for their corporate world.
A corner site with a large frontage, the building is designed as an efficient open planned space with floors overlooking each other.
An independent circular service core and an enclosed foyer as a reception was a composition of solid forms coming together.
Rooftop was seen as a recreational terrace garden and ground as a large reflective pool, enhancing the facade and distancing it from the adjacent roads and parking.
A feature and gesture, a long cantilevered smoking balcony projects out of the building facade to look at the building facade as well a reflection into the pool, a clear 'vertigo' threat, smokers are made extremely uncomfortable, it also reflects the open, fresh and 'out of the box' philosophy of the clients.
Intex corporate office is a compact design which attempts to capture the essence of their environment and values in built form.
