Manasara - The Profile Cutting Store.

CATAGORY – COMMERCIAL & RETAILS

PROJECT TITLE – MANASARA

LOCATION  – PANCHKULA, HARYANA (INDIA)

AREA          – 1000 sqft

STATUS     – COMPLETED IN DEC 2014

Metal art has been an integral part of architecture throughout history in India.India had produced someof the greatest craftsmen of its time.

 But in last few decades, modernization in architecture has discouraged them largely due to time involved in their work. As a

 result they have been losing work, forcing them to quit their ancestral profession in search of alternate ways to earning.This poses a serious

threat to permanent loss of art which developed over ages.

The aim of the project is to bring back their art. The program of the  shop is to display various applications of water Jet CNC cutting

in architecture. The concept is to retrospect the art from the past and redefine it for a new modern world. Revival and re – interpretation

 of the art would increase the demand of art, which in turn would generate work both for artisans and the machines.

The space program required space for outdoor garden elements, Interior furnishings and artefacts , Space for Discussion , Display

 panels for variable display , Working space for designer , washroom and pantry..

The Store has four zones , Outdoor garden , ethnic Indian, Working space, Interior zone . The transition between outdoor

 and indoor area is an expression of motif in various style depicting ethnic and modern tone.
