Gatehouse Sabar Pipes & Pumps

Architecture

Sanand, 2019

 

Manufacturing industrial pipes since two generations, the family business of Sabar Pipes & Pumps established their industrial park in the south of Sanand, India. With a developing business, the need for an appropriate architectural representation comes along.

For us as architects was the aim to find a design language, subtle but with impact, functional but unconventional. The basic structure of the design consists out of rigid blocks, diagonally cut and opened up through characteristic windows. The basic, functional layer gets enriched through a swinging roof, lightly balancing on stilts, dancing along with the roof. Like a veil the stilt pipes create a play of light and shadow, adding a dynamic layer to the gatehouse.
