Location: Surat, India
Project Work Status: Proposed Projects
The project required us to design the facade for an existing commercial building. The building set in a busy commercial area of Surat, has a very unassuming character. We wanted to draw attention to the building, but with subtle aspects of the facade. The inspiration for the design of this facade lies in the branching of a tree. We were intrigued by how a single trunk branches out and forms this complex network of branches, difficult to comprehend sometimes by a passing glance. Our interpretation of this network of branches is intended to make an impact without interfering with the openness and glazing on each floor. These branch-like lines will be made out of painted solid wood.
