Apart from that I like photography and lighting design. Architecture for me For me architecture is not only designing buildings but it is the art of creating liveable spaces which reflect the personalities of the people using it, spaces which touch the souls of people. I believe that space is the essence of architecture. I like to create architecture by playing around with spaces. When the function of the space is followed by its form, a good design is born.

“Architecture is learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in light. “ - Le Corbusier

The site is located in Pune , as this city has a rich cultural heritage and modern contemporary structures maintaining equilibrium of architectural versatility. This site is located in between two roads heavily loaded with traffic round the clock. Third Floor 02

Planning The project was to design a commercial centre consisting of retail shops, Second Floor informal shopping space and an office building in the centre of the city directly connected to the metro station. The site had main roads on its two sides. I wanted to design a structure which would look equally attractive from both the sides. Hence I came up with a design with two stepped blocks of retail showrooms connected by bridges with an open landscape area in the centre. I created landscaped terraces on the steps of both the blocks. The office block was towards the south of the site and the informal shopping area was in the northern block, both with separate entrances. The First Floor concept of terraces and connecting bridges was made to encourage interaction and visual connectivity. As there are no green spaces in the surrounding, my aim was to create as much as possible greenery in on the site.

Conceptual Massing Floor plate is reduced as the structure rises, which adds dynamism to it. At he same time terraces formed can be used for outdoor activites.

PCMC wanted to a lot this site for commercial use, but the builders contradicted and demanded part of site to be allotted as a residential zone. Approval was given to this statement and it was quoted that the commercial space will be 50% of the total area while retail market will have 30% and 20% for the offices.

Concept A homogeneous structure acting differently but yet a single mass. After looking at iconic structures like Eiffel tower , Burj Al Arab, colosseum one common factor of simplicity in complexity can be observed. The beauty of form is such that these icons can be sketched within 5 sec or up to hours . So the whole concept of commercial center lies between the simplicity of the form and complexity of the function.
