The stunning realization in Kochi, Kerala, has been designed by Fahed + Architects Studio. The project keeps in mind the climate and place. In this particular format of construction the labor component is much higher than an average structure. The practice has tried to use materials that are locally available and has been used in a tactile manner. The material composition involves bare concrete, terrocotta / huradi blocks, steel and wood. The top most roof has been made of steel and pre-veneered MDF. The entire structure is well ventilated and the fold-able shutters when opened out gives the experience of working in one large balcony. The corporate floor of the AMICUS is self sufficient in terms of power requirement. It’s got a 23Kwa solar panel that takes care of its requirements. The workstations and other key elements have been custom designed.
