Designers at Planet 3 Studios created a nest-like woven structure at Baya Park offices in Mumbai. The project was inspired by a bird species after which the company was named and is meant to provide a private meeting space that is part of the building’s lobby area.
The project was inspired by Baya weaver birds known for making complex nests, and its sculptural, fluid form evokes those designs. It twists and turns in an engaging manner and fulfils the programmatic requirement in a fresh way. The nest was constructed out of plywood and recycled pine wood strips frequently used for packaging inside shipping containers. The structure’s fine texture allows for light to filter inside and create an intimate environment. Across the room is a green living wall that combines perfectly with the nest’s organic quality.
The entire waiting room is marked by a biomimetic approach paired with contrasting materials. The firm’s logo is rendered on a backpainted glass, while modern pieces of furniture and the reception desk’s acrylic surface of the reception desk completes the look.
