The Design evolves with the intent to stand calm and composed. The Building claims its entity in the entire vicinity, bringing a sense of pride and  belongingness to its users.

The Concrete building mass is steered and sliced by three vertical planes strategically to attain relief spaces at the front –double height RECEPTION LOBBY, Ground floor and at the center –Courtyard, First floor, revealing the inner flesh of the building which breathes through articulated terracotta brick parametric screens.

The Respire Office is about the homecoming to the Industrial modern Office culture, where it was an exercise in building more with less. Offering large open space layout with negligible internal walls, Volume with maximum ceiling heights and no false ceiling, keeping the services exposed, Abundance of Natural light and Air in all the corners, So that there is least dependency on mechanical means for light and comfortable working atmosphere.

The courtyard devised at the first floor enables Light and air to penetrate deep into the building, allowing it Breathe naturally, accentuating the space quality and celebrating the honesty of the ethical material palette of exposed concrete, terracotta brick, steel, Birch plywood etc in their most intrinsic rustic form to intensify the visual and tactile sense. Lush green pockets of air purifying plants growing out of shelving systems and desk tops  imperfectly combines with the palette and provide a link with the living nature.

The North – South orientation rectangular plot with South facing front faces the entire day journey of the hot scorching Delhi Sun, where the summer lasts for straight eight months annually.

The Building Façade responds to the two aspects – Responding to the Climate and Augmenting the immediate context.

The Façade is an outcome of a simple evolution process from line to plane to forms. The Responsive Façade of the building is dominated and also unified by distinctive numerous vertical louver sun shading system, articulated neatly over the High performance DGU thermal break windows to cut down the south Sun gain consequentially.

The consequential central courtyard on the first floor is a significant relief amidst the massive concrete block which is an ‘open to sky’ calm space stimulating tranquil, cool, green micro environment with a water body and trees. Created by enclosure from two sides by terracotta brick jali, the breathing walls, brings in cooler air inside the building, reduces the dependability on Air conditioning and contributes again towards energy efficiency of the building.

All the internal walls are made in exposed terracotta bricks complemented by birchply workstation and partitions. The Interior Workstation space is conceived and optimized as modern industrial design which is rustic, stripped back and warm all together.
