Total area of the office space including the terraces: 60000 SFT approx built up area.
We had first met the clients when they were not sure on the amount of area required for their lease, the brief was formulated with the client in terms of number of people to be seated on each floor and overall cafeteria location , lounge location. However, we had number of meetings with the client to ensure that the near future requirement are been met with.
The only brief given by the client is that this office should have the look & feel of Silicon Valley offices.
The total number of staff seat is approx 500 numbers.
The opportunities as a designer we have got were to have an opportunity to design maximum creativity possible. We had an opportunity to break free from the usual business offices to be provided that it appeals to the youth. The challenges were surely faced as to ensure that the total number of employees is fitted within the area given and to ensure that the office still looks spacious in nature.
When we fitted the numbers on each floor we were careful to ensure the density on each floor, we wanted an evenly distributed office and very evenly distributed interactive spaces which would complement with the layout, and these interactive should standout and should be complementary asset towards the work flow space. In each floor we had given a very distinct color to highlight the interactive space and colors chosen are complementary to the work. We ensured that a lot of color is used in the office so as to identify their corporate entities, as the sense of belongingness is established.
We have different kind of interactive spaces which includes Writing zone, Bar ht meeting space, Interactive library space, Brain storm area, Think tank area, Living social green zone area, Green Swing seat area, Entertainment /Game Zone Area, Corporate Lounge, Open Meeting space, Free Space Meeting. The whole design revolves around the interactive space so as work itself become a casual approach.
We allowed a lot of ceiling design play with openness and light criss- cross. The staff area has an open based concept with indirect lights, strip hanging lights & some decorative light features. The entire Meetings & Cabins ceiling has a combination of gypsum & modular for sound absorption & esthetic look.
The HVAC & other safety security system were design, complements the open ceiling concept.
We have articulated the artworks in the premises which speaks about India, The concept of art is been done on each floor-wise basis and we have tried to integrate the life in India, Regional contexts, colors & festival of India, the rich history of languages spoken in different parts of India and the human touch in various region of India.
One of the floor we have added the regional context which is Mumbai. Mumbai has its own richness of culture, languages & entertainment. This city is called the city of dreams. We have tried to integrate the various basic elements that form the daily life of every person.
On the other level we tried to depict few walls which show the rich colors & festivals of India. Indian festivals itself has vast richness of colors which form the life of its own, by creating a floor dedicated to festival highlights the modern touch of life.
On One of the floor the wall speaks about the various languages been spoken in India. India has been diverse country of many religion, language and dialogue spoken. Unlike many other countries India has 22 official languages & as per census 1,652 different languages (including languages not native to the subcontinent).The client itself deals with education where the language becomes the integral part of children’s future highlighting /having an art of various languages spoken.
The other floor has been dedicated to the human face which represents each region, we tried to make the lively wall of various faces in India, and these faces are unspoken richness existing within ourselves. The building has various terraces space from level 8 th 9 th & 11 th these terraces have been design to complement the interior and work flow was to have an extension of the interior. The terrace has been designed with lot of natural plantation and artificial floor grass. The 9 th floor terrace was formal as it wasextension for senior level staff. The terrace spacing was a complement asset of the cafeteria recreational elements. We added a lot of sculpture, water fall to give it a very smoothing feel.
