Karan Darda Architects Boasts a Sculptural Construction

For its minimalist meditation space in Pune, India, local studio Karan Darda Architects relies on a sculptural aesthetic and a functional layout. The exterior design of the structure is made out of a red brick wall that offers a strong juxtaposition with the surrounding orchard of chikoo trees. Although initially, the concrete structure evokes a strong contrast, its red-ish hue subtly references the dynamic of the earth.

Located in a farming region, the minimalist meditation space is erected in honor of the Hindu deity Shiva and provides space for individuals to conduct their daily worship. Karan Darda Architects keep tradition in mind, while they stylistically reinterpret the minimalist meditation space with strong references to an architectural design that communicates sculptural merit.
