The client’s brief was to design commercial building comprising of offices, showrooms and recreational spaces. One of the key objectives of the design of commercial building was to utilize the available ground coverage as far as possible. The design had to developed within the permissible bylaws, the site profile was triangular in shape, therefore the shape of the site was a major determining factor in the evolution of the form of the building.

Orbit 1 has advanced architectural implications like the Curtain walls and openable windows. Curtain walls through its transparency let natural light inside and brighten the environment. Such walls give a pleasing look to the elevated construction.

Glass reinforced concrete facades are quite durable which can be moulded into any shape and colour. It requires minimum maintenance and it is weather and fire resistant. It also acts as a sun breaker. The operable windows control the temperature and these windows can be washed from inside and easily maintained. They can continuously provide ventilation during power outages.

The design was developed through a series of sketches and form development to create an iconic design that would define the skyline of the city and stand out with its unique design character.
