Location: New Delhi, India

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Area: 1852 Sq. Ft

Project Completed: 2005

The office for SAHRDC was designed on a 50 sqm corner plot.

Single consolidated volumes were created on each floor, and flexibly partitioned.

Each volume is serviced by a buffer bay which shields internal work spaces and is composed of a cantilevered staircase and toilet stack. The porosity of the external wall ensures that this bay is well ventilated. A single repeating brick module creates a visually complex pattern reminiscent of traditional South Asian brise-soleil.

It was crucial for the facade to converse with the bustle on the street, whilst being fortified. The porosity of the wall, thus, maintains a degree of privacy while playfully engaging with the street corner.
