Sattva Signature, a visual treat of 4,55,000 Sq ft commercial space in Hyderabad, is designed with an inviting view of the high street retail space. The façade is beautifully wrapped in curtain glazing and detailed in beige stone tile and metal.
The opacity of the tile perfectly balances the transparency of the façade. The cut-outs in the façade break the monotony creating a visual spec from every angle making it an iconic architectural feature of the city. Façades have a cultural context that must be taken into consideration. Lighting, both during the day and night, is one of the fundamental parameters that one must think about while designing a façade, both from the aesthetic and functional points of view.
ZZA encourages and practices research and exploration of façade and fenestration technology to incorporate façades that are environmentally profound, self-maintaining, and sensitive toward the context and functions of the interior.
