The office building project is a majestic structure that sits on a sprawling 11,000 square meter plot of land. It connects to an industrial plant that specializes in the production of FRP tanks, and boasts two functional spaces – an office area and a manufacturing unit.

Exterior Facade

The office area covers about 4750sq. ft., providing a professional and comfortable workspace for the different functional groups working in the establishment. The factory, which spans approximately 65000sq. ft., is a hub of productivity and innovation, dedicated to the manufacture of top-quality FRP tanks. The building seamlessly integrates form and function, offering a unique and harmonious blend of industrial and office spaces.

The unique shape of the BSF Headquarter site, with its funnel shape, and the need for vehicle movement on the site influenced the orientation of the structure and the placement of parking areas. Founder Ar. Prathamesh Naik inclined towards following the principle of form following function, with the layout and features of the building determined by its intended use and the requirements of the site.

The office spaces and the factory working staff spaces separates in a way that they have a non-obstructive movement path with a separate entry and exit. The office building connects to the industrial unit on two sides for ease of monitoring over the factory work process. Linearity in design create a sense of order, balance, and structure, as well as to emphasize the connection between different parts of a building and the site. Linearity in form of material, color, features is also a striking feature on the structure.

The Office Building

Different office spaces are planned on the first floor towards the periphery along with the balcony. It overlooks the industrial plant (production area) and keeping the central space open with landscaping in the center creating a courtyard which ventilates the double height entrance lobby and the central courtyard. The courtyard plays a vital role in separating the spaces. The design seeks to ease the work life of the people working in the factory and office by creating conversational/ interactive spaces and open interiors.

As an industrial plant has multiple work areas, it houses a range of employees, from Fabricators to workers to laboratory experts and housekeeping.

The design of the BSF Headquarter seeks to solve the problem of consumption of excessive electricity in the office building as well as the factory area by providing sky light bands in the roof and providing vents for proper flow of air.

Vastu Shastra

The exterior zoning and the internal planning of the BSF Headquarter are done considering the ANCIENT INDIAN Vastu Shastra principles under guidance of our co-founder, Vastu consultant, Ar. Anagha P. Naik, as the client was keen on following the Vastu Shastra principles. The main challenge for Vastu compliant design in the industrial architecture context was to match the Tatwa of the site with the Tatwas of activities performed within the properties. The material, color therapies and patterns recommended as per Vastu Shastra are implemented in the design.
