Stacked Modular Frames

This proposed redevelopment of a residential building located in Bandra overlooks the quaint neighbourhood of Almeida Park and with a west sea facing facade sits amidst a blanket mixture of TDR and luxury residential buildings.

The building is conceived as a manifestation of the function and program; a transition between the lower more compact units of the existing inhabitants to the higher more spacious for sale units. The design presents a glass reinforced concrete (GRC) façade with framed openings that screen the interior spaces from the exterior of the building facade. As a gesture to maintain the individuality of each unit within; the facade is composed of fragmented modular frames to articulate the composition of stacked apartment units. 

Each stacked opening is either clad in pre-patinated copper or pre-oxidised copper. These modular frames that are randomly oriented to diversify the views and the rhythm of the facade also provide shade, daylight, privacy and juliet balconies. This shift and rotation of the modular frames also creates a dynamic surface while also breaking down the scale and proportion of the building.  The frame surfaces have been tapered to discourage pigeons from nesting and roosting to allow for easier maintenance of the facade.
