Connect October 2022

Images

'Connect' is a quarterly snapshot of our practice: recently completed projects to ideas emerging from the studio and critical issues that concern us.

In this edition we are focussing on 'Grade A office buildings' as a distinct typology in workspaces design. These buildings are highly sought after by top clients and international businesses looking for - a distinct address, flexible floor plates, refined facade language, best in class structural & MEP design, amenities, wellness & occupant comfort. In the Insights - essay section - these principles are elaborated in more detail. We have also included two of our earlier built office projects- Orb Sahar & I-Think Palava- which demonstrate some of these principles, as well as a new one under design stage called Summit.

Making good architecture is a complex team effort. At more than 120 staff today, between our two studios, we at KA are growing and gearing up for the amazing portfolio of work coming our way from our very reputed existing clients, as well as new ones. Equal to our design acumen and experience, the cornerstone of our firm has been the relationship we share with our clients. This relationship is founded on responsiveness, responsibility, respect, fairness, and patience. We have made a sincere effort to make these five qualities the essence of our firm's culture.

In the last section we are delighted to share some news on the activities and new projects at Kapadia Associates.

Club C at Taloja completed

This community clubhouse is prominently located off Taloja road at the entry node of the Eastern cluster of Palava. The design objective was to create inward looking spaces. The outer facade, with a series of perforated screens gives a controlled hint of life within the club while the inner edges are completely porous allowing various programs to permeate into the landscape. The round entrance pavilion deliberately breaks away from the orthogonal geometry to establish its presence on the street scape.
