This project required designing a studio space for Sajeev Visweswaran, an artist. This project helped to study artists' space requirements and their works.Exploring the form of the space with an understanding of the structure, envelope, act, organization, material, and location all based on the various aspects involved in the art and the life of the protagonist. These spaces were derived based on the artist's works. The process followed to develop the design was to extract 2D and 3D diagrams from his works and convert them to meaningful spaces, which finally became a design.
Hence the idea was to create a space that closely represented the artist as well as fulfilled the purpose it was made for. Keeping in touch with his ideologies, the space came to represent a form that is simple- one that is rooted to its surroundings just like the artist it was meant to represent. A space with strong visual connections allowing one to be secluded and connected at the same time. A form that has unity and variety in its orientation and made of materials derived from his vernacular Indian background.
