From the architect. The Jewel Box is designed to retail precious stones, and accommodate administrative offices. The building is shaped by both program and the geometries of crystals.

A series of design processes then dictate the malleability of the facades – our first inferences stemmed from raw crystal and its highly fractured attributes. We then aimed to rationalize the facets through several stages of refinement while ensuring a perceptible relationship between fenestration and the internal functions. However on the outside, the ‘bevels’ aspire to camouflage this relationship and become many parts of a homogeneous whole.

The beveled façade is 75mm thick, cast-in situ using ferrocement technology and light enough to be hung off the main RC structure. On the inside, the ‘bevels’ create a variety of edge conditions; therefore, each floor therefore gets a different set of views - of the immediate and distant context.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Jewel Box In Bangalore / SDeG" 06 Dec 2010. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/93742/jewel-box-in-bangalore-sdeg/>

I like the composition of windows but am not crazy about the colors. I'd also love to know more about what sustainable features they incorporated. How did they deal with the heat and indian sun?

heat and sun is what you are talking about.. India is big land with real diversity in weather conditions from head to toe... the place where it is built has pleasing weather throughout the year. I don't think that is really an issue... at least it's not a glass box which happens with commercial spaces more often these days.. without keeping the context of the place in mind... it's admirable work...
