A façade that stands out like an oasis in the desert

A J Architects, Bangalore

This beautiful façade is located in Mamulpet, which is a quaint, congested, commercial hub of central Bangalore. With this façade, A J Architects, Bangalore have taken a bold step to mark a new and modern skyline for the surrounding area.

Sustainable design is the core aspect of this design. The direct harsh sun rays on the west façade is minimised by creating additional projecting surfaces and creating void between the wall. The varying depths of these projections further help the sun rays to be cut at an angle. This way, the architects have been able to reduce the inside ambient temperature by about 2 degrees centigrade. These projected surfaces, have been adorned with curvilinear pattern with CNC cut design to add to the aesthetics.

The projected area on the façades are treated with 3m x 1m and 3mm thick tile panels. The staturio marble finish tiles add to the grandeur of the façade. The cove lights behind the projected panels highlight the building.
