'Amplifier' look a like-storage wall

Project details:
Project: Residence for Mr. Raj Nair Location: Mumbai
Project Area: 670, Sq. Ft.
It was a challenge designing this typical sized Mumbai apartment situated in hustle bustled north Mumbai region. The columns were hindrances in the wall elevation, as we were falling short of storage of kid’s toys & stuffs. This wall offset was utilized as storage spaces in the form of amplifier. Thus this wall became a musically interesting one for Kids room. It acts as storage for toys now.
As design can have endless possibilities, further hypotheses can be derived in terms of utility, Shape, size etc. It can serve as an interactive wallboard for kids, where they can write and rewrite on it. In this case the base material can be charcoal board. Secondly, it can have lights in it, acting as interesting light options during night. In this case the shutters can be of printed glass / acrylic. Thirdly it can be of complete transparent see through glass. There can be endless assumptions & derivations of the wall elevation. But currently it is the best & interesting thing in her room & in the house.
