Introduction of the Architect
Krishna Kamal Jewellers, a jewellery showroom is situated in a taluka place called Karad in Satara district, Maharashtra, India. It has been designed by a nationally renowned Architect Javed Kachchhi. He has been awarded the National Award called “Bharat Gaurav Award” for the excellence in design in the field of Architecture. He is a contemporary Architect and strongly follows the principles of design (Harmony, Symmetry, Rythm etc). He is popular for designing symmetrical structures.
Introduction of the Project before execution of design plans
When the project was handed to the Architect, it was a hall measuring about 3.6m x 12m with eight columns emerging out from the walls. Two drainage pipes ran down through the wall inside the showroom. As there was an adjoining neighbour’s property, so it was not possible to pass the pipeline from outside the building. The first task was to hide the pipeline as well as the columns. But as the width of the hall was not much, it would be improper to cover the entire wall in panelling at the level of pipeline or the columns.
The showroom was quite long in length and did not have any ventilation from the side of the rear, so it was necessary to make it air conditioned. Split air conditioners were only the option and for that again, we had to pass its drains out.
