Bellad & Co. Corporate Head office, Hubli
Architecture and Interior design for an automobile dealership company, Hubli, Karnataka
PROJECT AREA: 6,500 Sq.ft. | Completed March 2016
This was to be a straight forward office project till we visited the site. The top floor of an equally straight forward office building, had columns and beams and a slab, but from the road we noticed that the terrace above had been covered with a curved galvalume roof. The office shifted one floor higher and we played with the volumes created by this curved roof, open outdoor terraces, surround the office space – lush with greenery. The space itself – black Cudappa floor, concrete partitions and ply doors and ceiling is all about the light. The sunlight that streams in from skylights, through the greenery of the terraces, and accentuates the neutral raw palette of materials.
Hubli has a beautiful climate – Cool and windy most of the year. This project ensures that the office is naturally ventilated, replete with mosquito meshes and fans.
