As Hasmukh Patel’s practice grew, he began to think about building his own office. Together with two partners, his engineer and his chartered accountant, he was able to develop a site on the banks of the Sabarmati River. All three companies took space in the building and the remaining space was sold. Patel moved into the building when the first two floors were completed. Like the Gujarat Tourism Bhavan and Medicare projects, the character of the building is established by a composition of voids. Creating amenity was also of key importance. As he had in many of his houses, Patel located the building at the front of the site. This strategy enabled a protected garden overlooking the river to be developed and to be enjoyed by everyone working in the building. The upper-level voids contain terraces which catch the breeze and give extensive views of the river.
