DIVERSE CORRIDOR

uilding an “Active Interface” with the health lenses in mind requires careful consideration of context, culture, food, and identity. This pattern promotes active frontages and diverse realms to create an active streetscape and activities within a corridor and provide a transition between public and private spaces.

summer studio - 2017 - washington d.c Project required us to study a inactive business corridor and think how one can awaken the existing vibrant street character of crystal city, washington d.c

abstract depection of exisiting facade

proposal was to connect the inactive skyrise frontage on the north - to active shopfronts on the south through pedestrian bridge which would not only add speacial character to the street but also help employees to use the enclosed garden space on both sides which currently is much open to experience the scale.

perspective renderings for residential architecture projects, 2016

professional work- 2016,india position - archtect Project status - under construction

in clockwise direction, image 1, was a residential project in south bangalore, india. the aim was to ncorporate as much natural light and ventlation possible available from the surrounding. since the facade was quite lengthy, the concept of louvers were used to break the monotony trough screen and still have privacy. pockets of green space at the third floor compliments to the large area of the design.

a gated housing community required us to design park and landscape to cater to its future residents. the main goal was to be able to design the parks suitable for all ages.

imgae 2 was a town home design for a gated community project with a fixed built up area requirement wich ended up to look like squares, hence the concept of patio space with partial screening was introduced and was a success. image 5 was another town home design for the same project.

as an architect on this project, was assigned task to coordinate with vendors, nursery’s, site engineer and keep the client updated through off-shore interaction proposed park and under construction images

images 3 and 4 was another residential project and the renders were to help client analyse the built-up area and planning according to the requirements.
