Project description: The unusual brief for the project required two buildings, a furniture factory and display center and an adjacent building, both owned by the client, to be visually connected so as to provide a united front to the viewer. The project, located on an industrial site in Panchkula, India, challenged the monotonous surroundings by breaking stereotypical design solutions. The client wanted the result to be both chic and contemporary. However, the by-laws did not allow any drastic measures to be employed.

Therefore, the entire project uses metal fabrications to make a facade that gives the two buildings one face. Inspired by the organic planes of the art of Origami, an external screen of expanded metal mesh was unanimously decided as the best solution. Further, to make the design site sensitive an additional layer of FRP panels was added, which also helped in reducing south heat gain. The FRP panels were created in the industrial workshop of the Furniture factory itself for the designers wanted the exterior to be synchronized with the core of the factory. A mould was custom made for the panels based on the inputs given by the client and design specified by the architects. The dazzling yellow of the panels was deliberately decided upon to provide a contrast to the dull grey of the metal mesh. The unconventional and eye-catching design of the facade provides a relief from the monochromatic, regular surroundings.
Special Features: The bright yellow FRP panels mounted on grey steel mesh provide an added element to the unconventional design.
