Location: Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Project Work Status: Completed Projects
Area: 40,200 Sq.Ft.
Project Completed: 2009
The project consisted of, designing a corporate office (22800 sq. ft.) and a warehouse (17450 sq. ft.) for Hydrobuilding systems on Old Madras Road in Bangalore. The warehouse is a pre-engineered structure and the corporate office is designed to have a platinum green building rating (USGBC LEED rating). Hydrobuilding systems are suppliers of aluminium products (Domal, Technal etc.) and their corporate office needed to house an expo space as well as office spaces connected to their ware house and training centre. The building also had to showcase their products- sleek aluminium sections, louvers, PV panels etc. The spatial organization was pre dictated by the brief as the interrelation of the various activities were predefined and fitting that into the linear site was challenging and thus the compactness of the built form. A relief to this stringent arrangement was achieved by introducing bands of skylight and green across the width of the built form.
