Piercy Conner takes Living Steel design to India

  • Comment
Piercy Conner Architects' award winning Symhomes design has been submitted for planning permission in Kolkata, India

The Symhomes MK1 won the Living Steel housing competition in 2005 and the Future Project Sustainability Award in 2007 for its imaginative and sustainable use of steel.

The steel-clad building will house six three-bedroom and six four- bedroom apartments, each surrounded by a large terrace shuttered with perforated steel panels.

According to the practice, the outer panels will cool the building with ‘shade and airflow’ and provide a screen from torrential rains.
