The floor plate is on the first floor of Chandigarh’s Iconic Madhya Marg which forms the main spine of the commercial activity of the Corbusier city. The site enjoys natural light and views from the front and rear opening of the floor plate. An attempt was to create a space that amalgamates the company’s ethos with a mature expression of interior architecture. The key principles that guided the spatial planning strive to achieve – clarity in sequence of spaces, visual connectivity and optimising for efficiency of floor plate to align with the list of requirements.
The vernacular Indian material brass has been used to create millwork that beautifully blends with a sort of Japanese aesthetic of a square 8 inch length x 8 inch width x 8 inch height module lattice that becomes a building block for the reception area. The walls as well as the ceiling is created by repeating the square cuboid module. The cast in-situ white terrazzo floor which is impregnated with specially sourced coloured chip glass from the old town of Firozabad in India.
Metalwork is painted in three soft pastels colours- The sea blue in the executive areas, the earth peach in workstation area and pastel greens in the café / spill out area. These colours being distinct, do lend a character to each category of space but also blend into one another to create a cohesive continuum of spaces. The terracotta has beautiful natural variation of hues of brick red colour that create a stunning unifier for the entire office space. Ceiling suspended lighting in charcoal grey reinstates a geometrical order to the spatial character of the office. Recycled boards are used to surface clad the walls as well as to create baffle ceiling elements so that the materiality and sight flows with the experience.
