Focus on Sustainability

Banaji & Associates have envisioned an ultramodern design to repurpose a dated industrial building to a commercial office - Crimpage Corporation in Mumbai - with state-of-the-art amenities

The project provided the architects an opportunity to adopt a more sensitive and sustainable approach to design a greener building with low carbon emissions and waste to landfills. The building’s transformation was re-massed with larger floor plates on the upper floors. The sloped structural glazing on the north facade facing the road not only enhanced the aesthetics but allowed the natural glare-free light to enter the workspace and minimize heat gain. All other sides of the building have adequate rain and sun protection. A distinctive feature is the protruding elevator and the experience of seeing the road; this movement in floating space establishes a visual connectivity.

Working closely with a team of structural engineers and green building consultants, we were able to arrive at an environmentally sustainable architecture that fits within the context of the site and surrounding community

A better work environment is provided with higher ceilings, energy efficient air conditioners, and a rooftop terrace with open cafeteria. The skylight and exposed structural steel create a bisection of the building to create a stair core that brings natural daylight into the interiors and serves as the spine of the building. The zinc-coated steel structures with opaque windows penetrate deep through a central and sloped translucent ceiling that enables the main circulation space and staircase, allowing daylight deep into the core. Acrylic cantilevered treads with glazed guards and railings keep the visual appearance of the staircase light and airy.
