Indian architecture studio Charged Voids has designed Office 543 around an elliptic meeting room with granite walls, which is a private space among the glass-walled offices.

Designed for construction company Khullar Builders, the office is located in the Mohali district of Indian city Chandigarh, which was planned by modernist architect Le Corbusier.

印度建築工作室Charged Voids設計了一個辦公室543,該辦公室圍繞一間花崗岩牆面的橢圓形會議室,是玻璃牆辦公室之間的私人空間。

該辦公室是為建築公司Khullar Builders設計的,位於印度城市昌迪加爾的Mohali區,由現代主義建築師勒·柯布西耶(Le Corbusier)計劃。

The two-storey building was conceived by the local studio as a series of small spaces that branch off a central double-height atrium. Within this space Charged Voids designed an oval meeting room that contrasts with the otherwise linear office spaces.

Directly connected to the main office and the central atrium, it is clad with the same Sivakasi gold granite as the building’s exterior.

這座兩層樓的建築由當地工作室構思為一系列小空間,這些小空間從中央雙高中庭分支出來。 在這個空間內,帶電的虛空設計了一個橢圓形的會議室,與其他線性辦公空間形成對比。


Alongside the meeting room and main office space, the ground floor contains a reception area and two courtyards, which were planted with small trees.

Openings between the rooms are designed to connect the office’s narrow spaces with these courtyards and bring daylight into the workspaces.



“The interjection of courtyards and skylights is a strategy that allows us to experience the fragments of nature like the wind, light and greenery,” said the studio.

“The courtyards are used as a buffer between the exterior and the interior, and break the powerful geometry of the elements of design.”



A floating metal staircase within the atrium gives access to the first-floor, which contains a terrace above the rear courtyard, additional workspaces and an office. A small sitting area is located on top of the oval meeting room.

中庭內的浮動金屬樓梯可通往一樓,其中包括後院上方的露台,額外的工作區和一間辦公室。 橢圓形會議室的頂部有一個小休息區。

Further offices are located on the third floor. Designed for another department within the company, these workspaces are accessed via a separate staircase on the right hand side of the facade.

其他辦公室位於三樓。 這些工作空間是為公司內的另一個部門設計的,可通過立面右側的單獨樓梯訪問。

The studio’s design aimed to address the limited space available on 140-square-metre site.

“The idea was to utilise the small site by building the bare essential number of elements with each element achieving its maximum efficacy,” explained Charged Voids.

The studio used a restrictive material palette of white marble and Sivakasi gold granite which gives the office its warm-coloured facade. The majority of the interior walls in the office areas are painted white.


“這個想法是通過構建基本必要的元素數量來利用這個小站點,而每個元素都可以達到其最大功效,” Charged Voids解釋說。

工作室使用了白色大理石和Sivakasi金花崗岩的限制性材料調色板,這為辦公室提供了暖色調的外牆。 辦公區域的大多數內牆都粉刷成白色。

Chandigarh was one of India’s first planned cities and was masterplanned by Le Corbusier, who designed landmarks including the Neelam Theatre and Capitol Complex.

昌迪加爾是印度最早規劃的城市之一,由勒·柯布西耶(Le Corbusier)進行總體規劃,後者設計了地標,包括Neelam劇院和國會大廈。
