ABOUT THIS BOOK

Founded in 2000, studio archohm is a leading Indian architecture and design firm, known for its versatile and multifaceted work and out-of-the-box innovations in design. Both as a physical and a philosophical place, through its hardware and software, archohm represents a dialogue, a collage, of materials, forms, feelings, functions and inspirations. And their acclaimed studio in NCR of Delhi, c28c, reflects their design ethos.
In this book, studio archohm demonstrates how c28c was conceived with a first principle approach to ensure an effective and efficient architectural solution. From concept to construction, every detail was dwelled upon so as to express and exhibit the environment-conscious philosophy of the office. A live canvas, the exhibit of materials, colors, textures and play of forms, make the studio a three-dimensional design laboratory and library.
This one-of-a-kind book shows how their architecture is conceived through volumes and forms, materials and light. It vividly narrates how they met challenges head-on, resolved the many labyrinthine issues and took on the responsibility of placing the building’s architecture and its attitude in a contemporary Indian context. It shares the story of a gratifying journey of the design process and demonstrates how life can be lived through design.
