The department of the firm was conceptualized to enable this choreography of spaces. The section generates the plan and the form of the business firm. Conceived equally a continuous loop that sectionally rises upwardly from the ground the plan is carved out of the whole. The looping concrete slab not only demarcates the programme along a split section merely besides becomes the stairs to connect the various levels into 1 continuous folding surface. The folding slab animates the space around information technology and renders it fluid almost similar thick viscous liquid.

The interior design of the house further accentuates the fluidity of the space and form, elements such as cabinets, beds, ledges etc drape the existing fluid shell in a way to erase the difference between compages and interior blueprint. Malleable materials such as Ferro-concrete which is more commonly seen in exterior elements, is used for piece of furniture, thus bringing about a connection betwixt the architecture and interior design. Ply and solid surface acrylic are used to create the fluid objects that melt into the existing structure to create a cohesive sensuous whole. Digital media and physical models were an integral function of the blueprint process, with these sculptures used as a reference prototype for the execution on site.

Since the shorter side of the firm faces the south, we have re-conceived the traditional “brise soleil” in a more fluid avatar to constitute the elevation and thereby cut the rut. As the longer side faces the east with a conservancy, the border is detailed as beingness porous so that the stardom between the inside and exterior is blurred. This also enables ample e light into the house. The bottom transparent base of operations also tantalizingly holds up the heavy fluid mass on elevation which appears to exist levitating.
