PROJECT TYPE : RETAIL OUTLET LOCATION : SANGAM COURTYARD, NEW DELHI AREA : 228 Sq. METER BREIF : Creating a retail outlet for “Chumbak” in furniture department REQUIREMENTS : -> DISPLAY AREA 1 Platinum Display 2. Gold Display 3. Bronze Display -> BILL COUNTER -> PACKAGING -> STORAGE -> PLAY AREA -> SIGNAGE
CONCEPT: From the selection of brand to the display of it’s furniture, we had to design a complete retail store in the mall. Creating seperate “Entry” and “Exit” point was a very important decision to make. Using bifurcated plan to seperate the Purchasing Area and the Play Area was indeed done intentionally, which in terms help the the shopper to leave there kids in the play area and encourage active buying. Also integrating the brand significance in play by picking elements from the brand itself.
MATERIALS USED TARGET GROUP TEEN AGE KIDS
FEATURED ANIMAL AND OBJECT OWL
CARPET GRASS FLOORING
ABOUT THE BRAND Chumbak was founded in 2010 as an idea for creating a range of fun souvenirs for India and Indians. It was a simple thought. Letâ€™s give the world something cool to take back from their travels to India. We also loved design and that was always above everything. Period. Though little did we know what was to follow. What started with souvenirs stocked in multi brand outlets soon transformed itself into a business spanning stores across the country in both our large format, full expe-rience stores and pop up stores across popular malls and high streets.

-> The owl on the outer facade represent the brand and attracts more customers from both sides the main mall entrance and the lift entry point.
-> The concept of retail outlet was based on the playful and colourful environment which compliments the brand.

VERNACULAR STUDY YEAR2 SEMIII (RESEARCH BASED PROJECT)
The art and architecture of all lands emante from their cultural heritage and geographical and climatical conditions. Kerala has a unique architecture that blends harmoniously with nature and creates an aesthtical appeal from its simplicity and functional perfection. “THE CHRACTERISTIC REGIONAL EXPRESSION OF KERALA ARCHITECTURE RESULTS FROM THE GEOGRAPHICAL, CLIMATIC AND HISTORICAL FACTORS.”
The orientation of the house in North South on the longer axis. In the diagram below. the three arches represent summer solstice, equinox and winter solstice respectively. The verandas and corridors around the house and those running the length and the breath of the house prevent direct sunlight from falling on the main walls. This aspect of the design along with the ventilators on the triangulation of the roof ensures cool air inside the house. the windows helps the down winds coming from south-west to circulate.
CLIMATE The average temperatur maintained by Kerala remains 20*c - 34*c. High precipitation and warm and humid climate are the area’s main characteristics. The form of the building with low walls, sloping roof projecting caves was mostly evolved from climatic considerations for protection from excessive rain and intense solar radiation.
In the above picture, the purple arrows shows the warm wind escaping through the ventilators, windows, etc and green arrows shows cool wind taking place of the warm wind. That is the reason the architecture of nalukettu has so many windows, ventilation systems and open verandah.
MATERIALS The natural building materials available for construction in Kerala are stones, timber, clay and plam leaves.
Granite is a strong and durable building stone; however its availability is restricted mostly to highlands and only marginally to other zones. Laterite on the other hand is the most abundant stone found as outcrops in most zones. Soft laterite at shallow depth can be easily cut, dressed and used as building blocks. Timber is the prime structural material abundantly available in many varieties in Kerala - from bamboo to teak. in most of the construction in Kerala, Rosewood, Bamboo, Pine and teak are used to give the strength in the structure
MIX MODE OF CONSTRUCTION 1. The stone work was restricted to the plinth even in important buildings such as a temple. 2. Laterite was used for walls. The roof structure in timber was covered with palm leaf thatching for most buildings and rarely with tiles for palaces or temples. 3. The exterior walls were either left as such or plastered with lime mortar to serve as the base for mural paintings
ORIENTATION The buildings are oriented North South. The longer axis of the building faces north south. Openings: In the traditional building the percentage of openings > West facing 11% > North facing 9.2% Openings: In the modern building the percentage of openings > West 14.2 % > North 7.82%. The percentage of opening is more in the modern building.
SOCIAL AND CULTURAL PATTERN : According to Thampuran(2001) Stage 1

> The culture has adopted with climate, lifestyle, dressing, food, etc. Due to itâ€™s simplicity it was sustainable for long. The market force effect were low.
Poomukham It is where you enter the house climbing up steps in the front. Traditionally it has a slope tilted roof with pillars supporting roof. sides are open. In the earlier days, the Head of the family called Karnavar used to sit here in a reclining chair with thuppal kolambi (spittoon) by the side of chair. This chair will have long rails on either side where the karnavar will keep his legs raised for comfortable rest.
NADUMUTTOM Traditionally Nadumuttom or central open coutyard used to be there in bigger houses in Kerala. There is an open area usually square in exact middle of the house dividing the house in itâ€™s four sides. Due to this four side division of the house by having a Nadumuttom.houses with one Nadumuttom used to be called as Nalukettu house.
WOODEN FLOORING Earlier we used to have wooden flooring in Kerala houses with less finish and without modern wood polishing. Now different wood in small to slightly big pieces is arranged neatly to give good appearance with good polishing which last longer is available for flooring. As wood cost is now going up, cost of wooden flooring is also on the rise.
CLAY TILE LAYERING The image shows the large opening of the center courtyard from the top view in the vernacular model.
AATTU KATTIL It is a swinging peice of wood, wide and long enough for two to three persons to sit. four corners of this wooden piece will be firmly fixed with thick coir to the roof. It is used to be fixed in large living rooms in old houses. In present day houses also, people who like this feature fix it mostly in family living area where family can sit and swing in this as a part of relaxation.
Traditionally clay tiles were used for floor of the Kerala House or rather kerala style of roof is supposed to be slope roof with clay tiles laid over wooden reepers and wooden kondu with wooden thulam, kazehukkol ,etc properly installed by old asaris with precision.
AESTHETICS : A traditional Nalukettu building is carved beautifully in teak wood, and used traditional proportion system to make it beautiful. Their simple lifestyle created lower impacts on the envirnment, through reduced levels of inorganic waste. This lead to creation of healthy environment and healthy users. Hence, they did not had much complex elements in their houses.
SAFETY AND SECURITY : The main character of the building is that it is divided into public, semipublic/ semiprivate and private spaces , so that the level of the safety, security and privacy of the spaces can be brought. Sleeping area for the elders is provided in the first floor. The Public spaces are used by the timely visitors, vendors, etc; there the Karanavar seats.

CONCEPT Keeping the symmetry and hierarchy in place. The placement of office cabins and rooms are done according to the hierarchy of the respected position. Also the office is designed to support wheelchair access, visual impaired and partial visual impaired integration of all these disabilities was tough but not impossible, these also correspond with the symmetery and hierarchy throughout the design. And the integration of the craft “Slice Form” helped in the overall design. So the keyword came out to be “Fluidity”, and has been worked throughout. The planning is done in such a way which help visual impaired and partially visual impaired to navigate easily, as the design is repeated over for them to understand the space.
1 Bar 2 is a formal furniture arrangement in executive offices consisting of an executive chair that sits across a desk (a barrier) from two guest chairs. 1 Bar 2 delineates the status between the executive and those who sit on the other side of the table.
