Facade That Looks Like Melted Concrete or Meltcrete

architect created

In order to create a unique-yet-quick facade, the architect created a series of curvilinear concrete facia which looks like a melted concrete. A second layers of frames made in metal silhouettes create another fluted layer which also acts like a balcony fence and facade element together.

Meltcrete uses a series of curves more like a melting structure and also creates an illusion of a taller structure than of is .it subtle expresses concrete poetry in a subtle way for a office space row plot. Something which was started by corbusier. The building had a very low cost of 1000 Rs/sqft half the cost compared to the conventional building of its kind. Concrete way used as a primary material for facade.
