Design that stands testament to strength and perfection.
Dinesh Panwar, Principal Architect- Urbanscape Architects in conversation with Leandra Monteiro shares the inspiration behind his latest project Stonex Kishangarh and the challenges he overcame to create perfection.
What was the inspiration behind the design of this project? (Stonex Kishangarh)
The design of the complex, in entirety stands as a testament to the ethos of Stonex – strength and perfection, through their state-of-the-art products and technology while adhering to the brand’s humble and rooted approach towards its processes, conceived as an unassuming and environmentally perceptive complex.
Adhering to exigencies of site and logistically sound planning the manufacturing block orients rather unconventionally in the East-West direction. The orientation is strategically exploited by incorporating complementary systems: North light trusses are introduced, sloping at a suitable angle of 23 degrees towards the south providing for ample surface for photovoltaic panels. The design of the office building revolves around the concept of mutually respecting the surroundings and nature. The built form is raised and sunk into the ground away from trees already existing on site.
