The design brief for this office housing a young software
solutions company was representative of the mantras of
emerging businesses: Efficiency, Flexibility and Attitude. The
project experiments with a design language that emerges
from these characteristics.
Inspired by systems of design in popular culture, and
industrial imagery, a modus-operandi we call the ‘Patch-On’
was employed here. The patch-on is made up of multiple
forms, layers, materials, textures, junctions and even
‘aesthetics’ which come together in ways that cannot always
be pre-controlled, and is visually non-stylized.
To achieve this, the project was conceived in three aspects:
The Skin, the Components and their Assembly. The
components manufactured in multiple locations across the
city and put together within a week. The exposed nuts-bolts,
screws, and metal clips of the assembly added their own
random punctuations to the space along with the colorcoded
storage boxes.
