Charged Voids constructs a compact granite office that opens skywards.
140 SQM (1500 SQFT)
JAVIER CALLEJAS SEVILLA, PURNESH DEV NIKHANJ
Office 543 was designed by Charged Voids on a tight, 140-sqm plot in a busy commercial district in Mohali, Punjab. The narrow building, closed from two sides, has openings through two courtyards and multiple skylights, thereby maintaining optimum daylight and ventilation.
An oval-shaped private meeting area emerges from the intersecting geometry of straight lines and an ellipse, resolving a complex design brief on the small footprint and creating a free-flowing spatial sequence
Designed to accommodate future expansion on the upper floors, the workspaces above are accessed by a separate staircase on the exterior. The material palette for the entire project is limited to white marble and Sivakasi gold granite, with the interior walls painted mostly white—contributing to a sense of seamlessness between the exterior and interior.
