anagram architects: SAHRDC office building in new dehli

anagram architects has designed the office building for the ‘south asian human right documentation centre’, or SAHRDC, a non-governmental rights organization in the city of new dehli. the group desired an interior with efficient space planning and overall cost-effective construction to run their day-to-day activities, which includes an internship program. positioned upon a busy street corner with pedestrian hustle and bustle, the small 50 square meter plot required a way to block the intrusive acoustical and visual problems along with direct solar gain also occurs along the 10 meter side of the plot.

these considerations led to a fortification from the street with a masonry wall which lightens its overall mass by integrating a pattern of penetrations. the screen features a cubic module of rotated bricks which has been repeated, allowing ventilation and daylight to pass through while producing the imagery of south asian brise-soleils. the arrangement is comprised of 6 brick components with the standard dimensions used in india: 230mm x 115mm x 75mm. horizontal interlocking from the stacked overlapping reinforces the structure along with a thin concrete beam within the cavity from the absence of a brick.

  • A day after I write an article about bricks, bricklaying and the generally sorry state of masonry today I find this amazing, beautiful wall. There is hope.

    I would like a photo from a distance so I can better understand the wall in context.

    Great job!

    For what it is worth here is my article – [url=http://www.house-design-coffee.com/brick-siding.html]house-design-coffee[/url]

    I hope I don’t get banned for the shameless plug. I really am here to admire this awesome piece of masonry.
