Ahmedabad is famous for its kite festival. The triangulations in the form are immensely inspired from the dynamics of this form rooting the culture in the design concept. The site is located strategically abutting a 36m wide road. The site measures 38 x 61 m. The design mainly considered appropriate road frontage and road widening. Southern exposure is minimized through orientation to ease the harshness of incident sunlight on the building. The building is aligned at an angle to the road leading to spectacular panoramic views of the dynamic city skyline. The building shapes itself to manage excellent response to wind. The city also known for its beautiful patch-work inspires the facade design forming patterns - quilted together. The design façade reflects a prominent and a robust form inspired from the physical qualities of the Ahmedabad diamond making it an iconic structure shining in its glory.

This will ensure minimal direct solar radiation through the glazing there by reducing heat ingress into the space to a large extent. The limit of transparency of the shading element balances aesthetical, thermal and day lighting requirements.
