KSM Architecture updated the Vishranthi Office located in India with a latticed brick material. Since the temperatures can reach extreme highs in the country, the firm was tasked with coming up with a design that reduced the amount of air conditioning used, while ensuring that natural light could still come into the building.
The latticed brick materials help with this challenge of keeping the indoor area cool, while still keeping certain sections open to daylight. The brick is placed in various positions along the front of the building, which strategically help in maintaining a moderate temperature inside. For those who work in the structure, having an acceptable coolness is vital to productivity, otherwise many find it too hard to concentrate on the various tasks at hand.
