magnolia office

Ahmedabad, Gujarat    2012

Tucked under an existing house, this office space takes advantage of the daylight with glass partitions and a fiberglass shade that wraps steel members to filter diffuse into the sitting are below. 

Inserted into a lightwell, the stair makes the most of its dimensional constraints and works as entry and security. Each tread is suspended individually from the beam above and anchored to form a space under shelter but still outside. In the space itself, translucent cabinets mark the division of waiting and meeting, and the simple, clean surfaces are punctuated with colorful or antique embellishments.
