An Orchestrated Form
Project: Atulya IT Park, Indore Architects: Nine Squares Architects, Indore
Ar. Sonali Aggarwal

The project is planned to be a prominent business address for entrepreneurs. While the building view changes dynamically along the road, one marvels at the balance maintained throughout. The podium, with its softly filleted edges, provides a proportionate base to the towers sitting above. Uniting the two tower wings is the centrally placed circulation core— a grand statement in exposed concrete work with glass slits.

All components remain true to their individual purpose, while holding hands to create an aesthetic whole. As one looks up, the podium with its artistically placed fenestration and the tower with its blue tinted glass and louvered fins, together seem to form a beautifully orchestrated instrument. The façade treatment emerges as an aesthetic response to the functions lying within.

As one enters the complex, a gracefully curving band guides one gently towards the entrance. A passage taking people to the top of the podium gets transformed into a piano simply by the play of light, tempting one to ripple the keys while walking by.
