Information Hub, Maktabah Jafariyah

Location : Sedrana, Gujarat

Area       : 600 sqft

A part of the Maktabah Jafariyah Academy, the Information Hub is not only a centre for internet access but also a conference room for singular events and meetings. Parametric equations and methods were used to derive the design of the spatial and interior elements. This hub is a single room, designed as an octagonal space with an unconventional pitched roof.

The working surface is designed as a single ledge running through the periphery of the space. A conference table in the centre of the space is connected to this working surface through a ledge. The design of the furniture is sleek and minimalist, employing concealed grooves instead of handles.


The heart of the design is the ceiling. The ceiling was derived parametrically, growing outward from the centre in a Fibonacci sequence, built conversely to the existing roof structure. The centre of this structure incorporates the lighting element that provides focused lighting on the conference table. The monochrome black flooring is devoid of any demarcation and allows the space to be perceived as a whole.


The colour palette is a classic black & white combination portraying the formal atmosphere of the space. As the space is small, the colours are chosen so as to give a silent background for any seminars and presentations held.
