Spastics Society of Karnataka, Bengaluru, designed by Biome Environmental Solutions called for a low cost, sustainable and a quick solution.
The brief given to Biome Environmental Solutions was to design a dance and music studio with an intimate platform for performing arts on a small plot in Bangalore, that would also serve as a venue for workshops and small events at times. The challenges of a tight site and requirements led to a design where each space and element played more than one role.
We designed project to be darker than what would lighting be for a space for visually able. Openings in certain parts of the building were so designed that through the movement of air would one feel the direction. This was a pro-bono work for our office.
The office for Biome is built over an older building. The owners had found the use of the upper floor to be redundant for them and were seeking to rent it out. An additional floor was added for this purpose.
