SoniCo Works, New Delhi
The Site & Process
A fluted glass door with partial visibility welcomes you into a shell largely described with white walls and a seamless warm grey micro-concrete floor with natural light filtering in through a full height glazing that overlooks a green landscape. This casual bigger half of workspace has been visually divided by using space dividers in metal and pin up boards from area to area bringing a certain amount of privacy to the seniors of the organization without compromising on the essence of working together as a team. All cabins and rooms are enclosed using clear glass and powder coated aluminum partitions. Various zones in the otherwise open space are subtly distinguished by using combination of flooring materials such as wooden floor and patterned cement tiles. The ceiling scape is carefully planned to contain services while retaining the open beam networked ceiling in middle to take advantage of the height. The heavy structure is dressed in classic cornices to become coves that support the illumination. Hints of warmth have been brought in through rich walnut polished ceilings and cabinetry. The formal one fourth of the space comprises of the director cabins that are illustrated with classic white panels, ceilings with cornices and a herringbone wooden floor. These classic elements are offset with sharp modern furniture pieces.
