Triburg Headquarters
New Delhi, India
In this office building for a garment-sourcing industry, craft, workmanship, and Indian identity were primary concerns, especially given the unplanned growth and high-tech, international buildings of Gurgaon, where the project is located. The architects arrived at an inward-looking solution inspired by the underground stepwells of Adalaj and the mythic Hanging Gardens of Babylon. A series of structures with interconnected garden terraces snake their way through courtyards, gradually increasing in height from two to seven storeys. Built of reinforced concrete and clad in clay brick, the structures notably employ large-span mushroom columns clad in brick in an elaborate methodology to create vaulted ceilings with structural exposed concrete, an aesthetic also employed on the exterior.
