By Anagram Architects. This is an office building for the South Asian Human Rights Documentation Center, a non-governmental rights organization in New Dehli.

“The office for SAHRDC was designed on a 50sqm corner plot.

Single consolidated volumes were created on each floor, and flexibly partitioned.

Each volume is serviced by a buffer bay which shields internal work spaces and is composed of a cantilevered staircase and toilet stack. The porosity of the external wall ensures that this bay is well ventilated. A single repeating brick module creates a visually complex pattern reminiscent of traditional South Asian brise-soleil.

It was crucial for the façade to converse with the bustle on the street, whilst being fortified. The porosity of the wall, thus, maintains a degree of privacy while playfully engaging with the street corner.”
