DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Bad Cafe

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hybrid Functionality - Hospitality + Yoga + Retail

INSPIRATION:
The average sq. inch of skin holds 650 sweat glands and on an average there are 100,000 strands of hair on a young adult amounting to approx. 2200 strands of hair per square inch. The human tongue has approx. 2000 to 8000 taste buds. Taste buds are the receptors of taste and are involved in detecting the five elements of taste perception,; sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy. The BAD Yoga building has 25,992 recycled pvc electrical conduits grafted onto its anatomy with surgical precision.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The architectural component was designed to facilitate yoga, gastronomical experiences, and cultural event spaces for music, art, performances, intellectual discourse and fashion. These activities are stacked vertically over three levels, including an open to sky terrace courtyard. The porous, perforated nature of the skin allows the project to breathe and ventilate thereby reinforcing the relationship between the inside and outside, between body and soul.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The project transforms from a gastronomical to a yoga experience and vice versa. The space on the first level operates as a yoga space from 7am to noon and then transforms in a space for lunch and fine dining. The program also harbors cultural event spaces for music, art, performances, intellectual discourse and fashion. These activities are stacked vertically over three levels, including an open to sky terrace courtyard.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project located in Bandra West (Mumbai, India) commenced in 2015 and completed in 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Re-use / Re-cycle : The dynamic skin, all of 25,992 black recycled cylindrical conduits were grafted into CNC aluminium composite box panels with acupuncture-like precision. The interior seating systems, furniture were recycled as well. The suspended light fixtures were cast in recycled plastic bottles.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Project scale : 275 sqm Structural Typology : Composite - Reinforced concrete + Mild steel structue Levels : Ground + 2 Floors

TAGS:
Hybrid, Reuse, Recycle, Black , Shades of Black, Skin, Tactile, Sensory, Light, Shadow, Digital, Parametric

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The human skin is an anatomical barrier in bodily defense from pathogens and damage between the internal and external environment. It also contains nerve endings that react to touch, pressure, vibration, tissue injury, heat and cold. The project aims to explore the tactile dimensions and the sensory experience of space. The average sq. inch of skin holds 650 sweat glands and on an average there are 100,000 strands of hair on a young adult amounting to approx. 2200 strands of hair per square inch. The human tongue has approx. 2000 to 8000 taste buds. Taste buds are the receptors of taste and are involved in detecting the five elements of taste perception,; sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy. The BAD Yoga building has 25,992 recycled pvc electrical conduits grafted onto its anatomy with surgical precision.

CHALLENGE:
The design development process leading to the fabrication process, given site constraints was a challenge. To mitigate the same we developed live, full scale prototypes in our studio to communicate to the contractor the ease of the fabrication process using state of the art digital fabrication tools. The sheer quantum of recycled pipes (25,992) was intimidating to the contractors at first and neither was there a precedent to communicate the process. We had to walk the talk and lead the fabrication challenge. We also used the prototypes as tools to present the design concept to the client very early on in the design process.

PROFILE:
When we’re speaking black and white, we’re only Bringing A Difference with the confluence of global thoughts, tranquil vibes and soul of food. Come by to explore everything superlative, as we have bricked up our dreams. Bhavna and Amit have tucked in a blissful culture of Yoga and F&B in Spain. Love for their respective passion and minimalism; directed energy for meeting and exploring cultures and people across the world and the spirit to lay the path of high living bricked up (literally) their dream café (Soul), Yoga & Meditation Studio (Body), Mind (Library & Community Spot) into a mesmerising structure that connects the external and internal links, just like a human body. We hope you’re convinced, that Bad actually lives.
