Water Kingdom has waterslides for adults and kids, a drifting river and various theme cruises. Spread across an area of 260,000 sq. m, this amusement park is frequented by 10,000 visitors every day.
The safety, design & maintenance-upkeep of the equipment are responsibility of team of engineers and designers, for whom this office was to be worked out. It's a small area presently, with 10,000sq.ft and G+1 structure, with scope for expansion. The look-n-feel of this office was conceived as a workshop with these skillful engineers at work. Hence the exposed structural system, double heights and a rugged more asperous design elements. The Kota floor was polished and refined and the mezzanine was in coarse wooden flooring. Few bright colours especially vertical members were in colour against otherwise soft background, to add drama.
