The Fabric Wave by A. J. Architects, Bangalore

The Fabric Wave – An old villa on M.G. Road, Bangalore (Heart of the city) is adorning a bold, vibrant and enthusiastic makeover, to characterize itself as a skyline statement to the ever-evolving contemporary surroundings.

A wave pattern façade was planned to camouflage the existing facade and raise the design quotient. The design team played with tensile fabric to achieve the flexibility and fluidity, which also creates a barrier from the west side sun, directly hitting the façade. This, in turn, helped in reducing energy consumption.

The play of light on the fabric adds to the versatility and vibrancy of the facade.

Tensile structures are certainly complex elements of our architectural vocabulary, they can be as simple as a tent, where poles and ropes pretension the membrane or fabric. This characteristic of the tensile fabric helped the design team to plan the façade without any major alteration to the existing structure.

The existing windows were retained and the same were carved out in the tensile fabric structure. The extension of the kitchen wall with exposed burnt bricks adds to the contrast of the façade.
