Interesting and eye-catching triangulated patterns in this office give a unique sensorial experience to the user. Designed by Smart Arch Studio led by Anupam Gupta, SAS office is an interior design project adapted to an existing space. The concept behind this architectural office was to stimulate the user senses through the form. The interplay of volumes, non-rectilinear visual appearance, and the fragmentation of the surfaces are the main guidelines of this project. The program includes a reception area, conference room, coworking area, and kitchen distributed in 88.50m2. This piece gives more information about the project shared with SURFACES REPORTER (SR) by the design team. Take a look:

The notion of employing parametric tools in the interiors gives an elevated look to the offices. “Through the application of generative design, we could explore different design possibilities taking into account feasibility, time and material optimization.
The result is a space that follows a rationalistic layout in contrast to its parametric skin, which gives us a different twist on how we perceive beauty, as a "controlled chaos",” said the design team.
Three-Dimensional Parameterized Surface in The Reception Area
A set of triangular volumes are distributed along the reception area, where the user gets the opportunity to interact with its volumetry as it approaches down in different heights.
The fragmentation of triangular mosaic results in a combination of shades, which gives a perception of depth and three-dimensionality.
The Interplay of Light and Shadow
Lights are cautiously located along with the space in different faces of the volumes, which are discovered while walking through the gallery.
At this point, reflective materials are used in the walls to create an effect of amplitude, while new visuals of the origami ceiling reflections are discovered from different angles and points of view.

Two-dimensional Effect in the Conference Area
While approaching from the reception area to the conference room, the visuals focus on a 2d effect coming from the wall to the ceiling.
An irregular line guides the triangular pattern as it gradually grows while approaching it. While direct light spreads in the room, indirect light enhances the parametric pattern in half-light.
In the working area, a common work table is located in the center, which allows the interaction between the workers and around it, a space for circulation and furniture. The contrast of exposed concrete, aluminum, and steel adds an industrial language to the space
