Playing with Textures

Playing with Textures

Texture is the latest cool tool to introduce the element of interest. Materials are inspiring designers and architects to seriously consider texture even in the smallest of projects, simply by drawing attention to the variety everywhere you turn.
Hot Demand for Hot Water!

Hot Demand for Hot Water!

Just like the 'Old Faithful', a natural geyser that shoots up hot water every 90 minutes or so in USA's Yellowstone National Park, the electrical geyser, which has now been rechristened to Water Heater, runs throughout the year irrespective of the season.
Performance Assessment of Coated Steel

Performance Assessment of Coated Steel

Coated steel products are for a long period of usage. Therefore, determining life expectancy of these products is important. While accelerated lab tests give quick assessment of the product performance, they do not account for the difference in actual conditions
Design Flexibility in Construction with Steel

Design Flexibility in Construction with Steel

Steel has become a universal building product due to its strength, versatility, durability and economic value. The use of coated steel for structures, roofing & wall cladding is growing rapidly because it offers a variety of benefits like aesthetic appeal and long service life.
Steel in vogue for highrise buildings

Steel in vogue for highrise buildings

Building a highrise or any multi-level building demands the use of light-weight yet strong materials. Steel, by virtue of its high strength to weight ratio enables large spans and light weight construction. Steel structures can have a variety of structural
The Growing Demand of Aluminium Extrusions

The Growing Demand of Aluminium Extrusions

Aluminium - the third most abundant element in the earth's crust finds its implementation in many sectors due to its environment and user -friendly nature - in Building and Construction (B&C), power sector, automotive, packaging, household appliances etc.
Tensile - The New Design Vocabulary in Structure and Architecture

Tensile - The New Design Vocabulary in Structure and Architecture

The history of tensile structures and tent-type housing, is as old as mankind itself. Leaves, barks leather and felt, existed much before fabrics. The Ancient Egyptians were probably the first civilization to use pieces of fabric for shade. They also found sails useful
New horizons with Tensile Structures

New horizons with Tensile Structures

"Tensile membrane structures are complementary to conventional methods of construction, and can be easily combined with steel, aluminum, wood, concrete, etc. Being lightweight, it can be easily integrated into your existing structural details, and are aesthetically also
Tensile Membrane Structures Emerging Trends

Tensile Membrane Structures Emerging Trends

Tensile structure is not a new concept but is probably one of the oldest methods used to provide protection from adverse climatic conditions. Evidence confirms that people have been making tents for at least 15,000 years, initially using animal skins.

Experiments with Glass  in recent Architecture

Glass as a material has inspired designers for centuries. In the last few decades though, innovation in glass manufacturing technology has presented designers with varied types of glass to play with. Glass is now available in a range of colors, thicknesses, and sizes. It comes with special properties that make it stronger, heat resistant, energy-efficient, increases light transmission, etc.
Classification of Glasses and their usage in Modern Architecture

Classification of Glasses and their usage in Modern Architecture

The usage of glass is increasing not only in commercial but also residential buildings instead of the conventional exterior material like brick wall, cement, and granite. In all the major metros of India today, we see quite good number of multi storied buildings with
Glass Bubbles at Nardini reinforce the power of laminated glass

Glass Bubbles at Nardini reinforce the power of laminated glass

The construction has not only paid attention to the internal and structural comfort levels of the structure but bowed to environmental issues too. While the bubbles play a continuous game of reflections between the glass surfaces and water pools they float over a large
Emerging Trend of Glass in India

Emerging Trend of Glass in India

The presence of glass in the Indian Design Industry was primarily felt in the 1990's when its usage started progressing from a mere aesthetic/decorative material to a structural material aiding in flow of spaces, establishing transparency in architecture and making
A peaceful Existence with Security Glass

A peaceful Existence with Security Glass

The desire for living and working in open, sunlit, glass-clad buildings has come face-to-face with the need to assure that building structures provide occupants with optimal security. Properly designed and installed laminated glazing systems can provide remarkable
