A part of the Carbonado series of 23DC Architects, this distinctive black and grey office building in Hoshiarpur, Punjab borrows its name from the champion Spanish bull- The Aventador, which also stands outside the building. While talking about the idea of creating this massive structure, Shiv Dada and Mohit Chawla, principal architects say that they wanted to create something iconic. 'Something which connects you with its natural surroundings and not just confines you to an air-conditioned concrete box.' The most striking element of this building is its 'Edgy’ facade that narrates a story of the rise and fall of the ever-so-changing stock market. The architects' duo shared more about this distinctive building in detail with SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Scroll down to read:

Shattering the age-old idea of an office building that is just a place to work rather the Aventador is designed to inspire us to be better every day. As the project comes from the firm's Carbonado series, it features black and grey exteriors just like other structures in the series. Carbonado is a black diamond that has lent its striking characteristics to the office.
Inspired by the black diamond, the irregular yet refined edges paired with tones of black and grey reflect in the structure’s facade.
The office was designed for a financial advisor. The ‘Edgy’ facade, therefore, narrates a story of the rise and fall of the ever-so-changing stock market. Aventador, the champion Spanish bull stands in an aggressive stance just outside the building, as if it is ready to face any challenge!
Surrounded by Nature
The bold exterior of the office was built by keeping its surrounding into consideration. The site had some beautiful mango trees around it, which provided a surreal contrast to the black building. The trees were retained and used as a part of the landscape design.
The building’s architecture is aligned in such a way that it offers a glimpse of the outside surroundings and nature from every space, establishing a visual narrative of integrated spaces. The inspiration of this office gives its facade a striking attribute that’s in stark contrast with its harmonious, natural surroundings.

Futuristic, Modern and Minimal Interiors
While the exterior gesture of the building is impactful, the interior exudes a futuristic yet minimal vibe. It’s got a certain character to it.
The iconic office houses palatial employee spaces and conference rooms equipped with the latest technology. Keeping the recreation and relaxation of the employees in mind, it also has a lounge and a cafeteria with a foosball table and other amenities.
Weaved along clean lines and modernity, the entrance driveway along with a serene water feature is kept minimal so that it doesn’t overpower the bold facade of the building.
