The CNC cut floral pattern on ACP is backlit with acrylic lighting which in enclosed by fundermax pavilions which again forms as a pavilions for the brick cladded walls and balconies.

The fixing of the floral pattern is done by aluminiumchannels that have been placed at a distance of 2’x2′ to ensure stability and a safe guard against the elements. A concrete finish fundermax band runs throughout as though it has been clipped in place to hold the imposing structure. The signage has been placed strategically to ensure it catches the eye at every step.

V Conventions by BLD Design Studio - Sheet9To sum up this project
A mix of both modern as well as traditional architecture is seen in the way the elevation as well as the interior. The style of the elevation is modern with a few traditional touches in the way of the floral CNC pattern and it’s vice versa with the interior and traditional style interiors with a few modern touches with the lighting. Thus a harmony has been achieved through it, a balance.
