This Corporate Office for Team Thai was designed by Tony Joseph, George Seemon, Anupama, Priya Pillai, and Ankita of STAPATI in 2015. The offices are located in Kozhikode, Kerala, in India, and cover a total ground area of nearly 30,000 square feet. The functional areas of the building rise high above the ground, leaving the ground floor free as a multifunctional space. This allows the landscape to move inwards and outwards, making the internal environment cozy and full of energy.
The front facade of the building is designed with an interesting trellis pattern to defend against the harsh sun, while at the same time allowing great ventilation in the internal spaces.
Among the materials and elements used in this construction, we will find polished concrete floors, concrete partitions, and an exposed concrete roof, which contrasts with the elegance of the glass and the surrounding vegetation. This entire ensemble creates a working environment in the middle of nature.
The triple-height spaces are pivotal to the air-flow within the space.
The offices are more protected from direct sunlight by a screen wall on the front and side. The terrace becomes a garden and lounge that adds another layer against the warm tropical climate and helps keep the interiors cool.
