DCPL Office, Valsad, Gujarat

The DCPL office building is located on a busy highway in Valsad, the site abuts farmlands and public property, introducing a relatively new strand of urbanity within an older infrastructural – agricultural fabric. Given a rather dreary context, the design for the office revisits a traditional archetype that of a container with an atrium - well proportioned with a rational structural grid.

The atrium provides a continuous visual connect amongst employees, while also allowing diffused light to penetrate through a large East facing skylight. A varying structural grid marked by exposed columns demarcates spatial allocations in the form of cabins and open office layouts.
