Manoj Patel Design Studio, Vadodara

Manoj Patel Design Studio, Vadodara, while designing this residence, interestingly transformed Ridged V-shaped sloping roof clay tiles of dimensions 10” height X 8” depth X 4”wide into an appealing wavy elevation façade. Ratio of 40% of waste clay tiles at free cost and 60% of new clay tiles at 10 INR per piece, were collected, cut into 6-8 parts of 1” wide and arranged at 45° in a customised series of continuous zigzag patterns. The pattern is fixed in with chemical solution against the perpendicular surface of wall, displaying an illusion of flow in pattern formations. Tile Patterns, are executed on the basis of sun’s movement from south to west direction throughout the day as per Indian context, keeping the area shaded.
