Project Profile

HRBC Offices, Kolkata: The majestic Vidyasagar Setu with its towering spires heralds the arrival of Kolkata from a long distance. At closer proximity one is greeted by a mesh of multi-directional viaducts interspersed with vacant ill-kempt greenscape. HRBC-the commissioning body of Vidyasagar Setu and its adjacent areas decided to use these spaces meaningfully by building an office complex.
State Legislative Assembly Building, Guwahati, Assam: The concept has been guided by the very specific requirements of a foreign mission. Three separate blocks with definite use patterns have been laid out around the central courtyard thereby giving a sense of security and privacy to the main office building. The façade, given a rich texture with Panna stone cladding and use of strong geometric forms renders a sculptural quality to the low-rise form.
Park Mansions, Kolkata: Located on Park Street, Park Mansions is a building of heritage and commercial prominence which was degenerating with age and negligence. Its revitalization was an attempt to bring back the antiquated Colonial grandeur and also introduce an additional mass within the inside courtyard as a new attraction. Inaccessibility in almost half of the spaces within the building due to tenant occupation resulted in a challenging restoration job.
Bharat Sevashram Hospital, Joka: The ever expanding spread of Kolkata is already taking the deficient infrastructure facilities with the health sector being the worst affected. While the northern and eastern fringes have witnessed some developments in the health sector, the southern fringes have been neglected.
