AAVAAS AFFORDABLE HOUSING, MARKETING OFFICE
The spaces are sequentially organised around a central spine, made of two curving monolithic walls of stone-veneer clad masonry in reusable concrete blocks. These spaces are slightly elevated off the ground on steel columns. Thus the landscape slides under the visible floorplate of the structure. The audio-visual room is made of tensile acoustic fabric while the other spaces are encased in recessed glass.
PERCH – WINE & COFFEE BAR
Perch Wine and Coffee Bar was envisaged to be an oasis of delectable tranquillity in the bustle of Delhi’s iconic Khan Market. Conceived around a large and well-curated selection of both beverages, its culinary offerings emphasise clean flavours, simple techniques and seasonal freshness. Meant to be both a place for idyllic repose as well as one of quick replenishment, the all-day bar makes room for solitude as well as social conviviality.
