Bearys Group Research Triangle, BGRT, is a R&D conclave, where some of the biggest names have their R&D facilities located in India. Hence the design direction was set to resonate the DNA of the campus, by pushing the envelope, re-imaging the public space in the facility.
The brief called for a multi-functional public space, which would include variety of programs- working lobby, relaxing zone, waiting zone, transition zone, zones for intimate and private meetings etc. all rolled into a giant architectural ensemble of remarkable energy and dynamism.
The lobby is dominated by a 9 meters high, central column that supports the waffle slab system. The space has been oriented around this dominating structural element in the space. The lighting design that unifies it with the waffle slab system, defines the overall architectural identity.
The pattern of the waffle system inspired the design of the customized lighting- the REFLECTED TOPOGRAPHY. The project succeeds in effortlessly merging the lighting design and the architectural space into one unified and successful public space with distinct character.
