Commercial development for Dabur
As an office building, 142, Rashbehari in its compact form offers the end users a working destination interspersed within highly activated spaces. The building is an attempt to integrate urbanism, sustainability and flexibility appropriate to the site's specificity and project's commercial viability. As an attempt to climatically orient the indoor and outdoor spaces from Kolkata's harsh summer and long monsoon the facade is exposed only towards the North and East. The building's core and supporting utilities placed in the west act as a protective barrier from the sun and torrential rain. A layer of exoskeleton is proposed on the glazing to eliminate glare and also unify the facade giving it a distinct architectural vocabulary.
