The elevation itself is a special feature of this office. Since the basement lacked a car-parking area, the building was constructed in split levels. A portion of the elevation is projected outwards providing space for car parking below it. Above this extended portion with aluminium louvers, a rectangular pergola with toughened glass top is built.
Reception, visitors lounge, studio room, pantry and bathrooms are included in the ground floor while the first floor consists of a conference cum studio pantry room. A studio room for craft work is provided on both floors. Between the first floor and ground floor a mezzanine floor for the managing director Arun Das, is added. Adjacent to the conference room, a partition using glass and laminated wood is given. Teak wood is used for the stairs and M.A.S for railing. One portion of the main office room wall is decorated with coir work. The copper lamps hanging from this ceiling highlights the work.
