Sanjay Puri Architects linear cuboids in India start to take shape
Linear cuboids seemingly stacked randomly comprise this software office building designed on an extremely long plot with a narrow frontage towards the main road. The plot is only 55 M wide and 305 M deep.
The stacked floors shift at each level creating outdoor terraces fronting the lengths of the office areas within, in turn creating an open usable space at each level. The weather in Pune city, India where this building is located varies from 16c – 28c allowing frequent usage of outdoor spaces. The design thus creates open outdoor spaces as extensions of the interior office spaces.
The building length is broken up by three entrances along its side and voids through the building which are also usable terraces.
The design thus creates a sculptural building with extensive outdoor areas as an extension of the indoor offices maximizing on the climatic conditions prevailing in the city, of its location and transforms the extensive linearity of the site to its advantage.
