The shift in the value of land and prospective applicability for commercial development paved the way for the re- development of Shivalik-Shilp. The project is located at a prime urban junction of the city. The design parti is two contrasting masses at right angles gently separated by terrace floors and scooped massing at the upper floors. Within, the design offers a multitude of collaborative breakout spaces and humanizes the formal office environs. High performance dual pane glass with ceramic frit glass and vertical shading devices are deployed to devise a very energy-efficient façade system that addresses the hot, dry climatic conditions of Ahmedabad. The building program consists of retail development on the ground, first & second floors; on the upper floors are offices of varied sizes, scaled to meet carefully considered sales profiles.
