JK House, at New, Delhi by Conarch Architects 1
Conarch Architects

Located in an uber dense Delhi locale, JK House forms a distinct urban landmark. The building design is both functional and expressive in nature, its lively sculptural facade is rich in simplicity and proportions. The backlit geometrical surfaces transform a mundane building corner on a busy street into a point of interest and heighten the excitement of the onlooker.

Built on an urban infill site and situated within four-minute walking distance from a transit hub, the project is appropriately sited to benefit from the city’s growing mass public transit system. The building design takes advantage of the proximity to the available alternative transportation system by minimizing the onsite area dedicated to parking.  For a building accommodating about 350 employees, the project provides for code minimum parking of 25 stalls only.

The structure comprises of six full storeys; floor plates are combinations of open-plan offices, individual offices, conference and meeting rooms. The stilt and basement floors have service areas, break out spaces and parking. On the floors above are the office units with meeting areas and open-space workplaces. The roof area is greened and partly designed as a roof terrace.

Based on the interactions with the client, Sh. J.C. Chaudhry,  the primary goal was to create a positive, comfortable and productive work environment. Characteristic of Delhi’s urban area, the site is a long narrow rectangle with existing built properties on three sides, with front, rear and side setbacks. Long narrow rectangular sites pose a challenge to naturally light workspaces at lower levels and areas away from exterior walls. Given the critical role daylight plays in occupant mental and physical health, a generously sized atrium was introduced in the middle to light the building from within. Low height desk partitions, light material finishes and full height glass partitions help daylight penetration in deeper areas of the floor plate. The building emphasizes occupant comfort with ample daylighting, natural materials, breakout spaces and a large landscaped terrace.JK House, at New, Delhi by Conarch Architects 21

The interior workspaces are crafted with dramatic angles in the subdued contrasting colour palette to create a sleek, uncluttered and striking experience. The custom lighting, built-in furniture, ceiling and wall design come together as a singular cohesive space to exude warmth required for the ease of business discussions. The muted colour palette and the quiet aesthetic of the straight lines vitalizes the participants and enables effective and precise communication. It is here the company’s deals are sealed, ideas are formed, and plans are put into action.

Innovative architectural solutions come with a set of equally complex and demanding building construction processes. Transforming a building design into physical reality is a challenge no less. Throughout the construction of the project, we collaborated with RP Realtech Pvt Ltd, who was responsible for construction execution and providing all of the material, labour, equipment and services necessary for building completion.JK House, at New, Delhi by Conarch Architects 23

The Bombay House, at South Mumbai, by RC Architects

The Bombay house is a unique typology that has existed since the colonial times. The space is restored and redesigned to its true time but creating opportunities and interactions for today’s use. A unique blend of time and function. The sequence of spaces within the house forms a loop. One enters the house in a library and then moves through a verandah to reach the living spaces. A passage from the living room leads to the bedrooms and the kitchen. Through the bedroom one again reaches the verandah that completes the loop. The design interventions intersect within this sequence enhancing the experience and creating opportunities within the house. – RC Architects

Conserving The Commissariat Building, DR DN Road, by Vikas Dilawari

Mumbai was the first city in India to have heritage regulations to protect its living heritage. This listing and the corresponding regulations binding these precincts would also protect these old areas from burdening the fragile infrastructure with high-rise buildings. These precincts, more than individual structures, puts forward each city’s uniqueness. Heritage awareness is certainly increasing on paper with more nominations of World Heritage Site ensembles. But in reality, its protection on the ground is decreasing at an alarming rate.
