The Bad Studio has designed a sales office for a property developer on the outskirts of Bharuch city in the western Indian state of Gujarat. Led by architects Boney Keriwala and Alak Parmar, the 70m² project called Wrapped Volumes serves as a sales pavilion for the developer’s multiple real estate projects.
Wrapped Volumes serves as a sales pavilion for the developer’s multiple projects. The site presented a couple of challenges: It lacked specific context, and at the same time the abutting road chops the site into a trapezoidal shape. The architect duo overcame these challenges by transforming this progressive movement of the road along the site into a geometric structure by wrapping up the spaces into a continuous facade.
As a result, the structure lifts itself from the ground and transforms into a dynamic geometrical edifice. Some parts of this wrap form a landscape layer, while others a protective skin, reducing the heat gain from the south. The façade opens up to the north for natural light to stream in.
The façade features a striking ribbed plaster which adds progressive motion to the structure. The office space ties in the landscape and structure together and provides a distinct spatial experience for both indoors and outdoors.
