Design Brief :
Manikchand flour mill required an administrative office near to the mill. The client expected a grand new structure to represent their brand.
Although the site had enough space within the campus for a new structure, there was an old warehouse which earlier used for stacking grains was lying vacant in a state of ruins.
We thought of it as an opportunity to Reuse the old structure and put it to new requirements.
Reuse of existing space to reduce resources:
The new design not only provided a cost saving solution, but also saved a lot of effort, energy and time instead of a new construction. A double height space was converted into a two storey office space with an addition of mezzanine floor. The window panels,appropriate to the office use, were created. The sloping roof was removed and replaced by a flat slab.
With new facelift and decent interiors, The warehouse building was completely transformed into a high end interior office space. It was a very satisfying feeling of accomplishing something from REUSE.
