Importance of Architecture in Commercial Buildings

In some provinces, it’s the architectural beauty that sustains forever.

The transition in the architecture of commercial buildings is the most tangible change that has occurred due to modern approach and requirements. In the twenty-first century, office spaces are planned as per the technically advanced working surrounding. It must accommodate the specific space, design, and furniture necessitated by the team. A lot of thought is conferred to the interior, art installations in public and meeting areas as well as the green approach. A commercial space should be such that meets the requirements of its team and visitors along with an upgraded and modern exterior.

A great office setting certainly compels you to come back at work. The typical commercial building must have:

  • Spacious offices
  • Administrative rooms
  • A storehouse
  • A reception
  • Separate elevators
  • Enough parking spaces
  • Cafeteria
  • Guest toilets
  • Small fitness center
  • Green surrounding
  • Emergency exist


It’s the façade that strengthens the interior of the office spaces and inculcates the desire to make the purchase action. Hence, the first impression is crucial from the design perspective. Façade depicts the vision of the architect and builder. It is very imperative due to its impact on energy efficiency. A series of small gardens can bring a sense of closeness to nature.

The building

With the change in design approach and increasing need for comfort & convenience, commercial buildings have gone beyond office structures and elevators. A modern day office building will house administrative rooms, convenience stores to stock the material, separate elevators for passengers, workers and executives, a cafeteria or a small canteen, a rooftop fitness center and much more. Systematic planning, design, artistic approach and placement decision play a crucial role. Keeping green attitude is highly appreciated.

Office space

Office space should be designed in such a manner that it can combat the stress of the team. It also tells your clients what to expect from the place. Floor plan and layout of the office setting should be straightforward. Jazz up the team desks, recreational space and public access area for brainstorming. Make a room for enough storage spaces and a kitchenette.

It is rightly said that the way a person works can be directed a little by architecture. We consider this before planning our projects.

What makes the perfect business hub?

A perfect business hub promises a convenient shelter to businessmen to kick start & accelerate their business. In today’s time, when co-working spaces have emerged among upcoming entrepreneurs and for the dire need of luxury among the existing business classes, the commercial spaces don’t operate in a traditional manner anymore.

We’ve listed down a few imperative elements that make a business hub iconic & preferable:

Suitable Location

While commencing any business, one of the major concerns is the location of the office. A space in the commercial hub of a city may be served with a price tag. But it’s worth the investment, for it bestows location benefits & convenience to commute. With right commercial locations, networking is an add-on, so is credibility.

Ravishing Inside & Outside

The office space should illuminate and inspire the business minds with its contemporary interior- high ceiling, rich interior, quiet zones, and cubicles for discussions with abundance of natural light, modern furniture and dynamic space. Also, office blocks should be spacious enough to bestow freedom to the clients. Sorted arrangement of furniture is a must.

Designed with Luxurious Amenities

It’s better to have another for spare. Isn’t it? 02 elevators can cope up with the rush hour traffic. Key facilities that are a must include 24/7 security, receptionist, business lounges, communal kitchen, and cleaning and maintenance. Also, spacious passages and CCTV cameras in the common area at each floor and a huge parking space can do wonders.

Re-read the Builder-Buyer Agreement, Before you own your own Dream Home!

Finding your dream home is no less than looking for a life partner. We wish to get all that we have dreamt of and when you finally come face to face with your dream home, there is no limit to the excitement, for sure. But try to pause and hold your horses before you pick up the pen to sign your good name, on the dotted line, on the piece of paper called Builder-Buyer Agreement.

A builder-buyer agreement is an important document while transacting to buy a property. It holds the details of the building/flat specification cost, mode of payment, time of completion and all other clauses, terms and conditions and legal implications, signed by both. It is a legal contract, which can prove beneficial to the buyer, if the developer fails to keep his word on any of the mentioned details in the contract. Also, as it is generally favoured on the builder’s side, it is necessary for the buyer to read it before signing it. Here are the four points to ponder on before you seal the deal.

1. Possession Time-frame:

The agreement mentions a month or a date of possession of the apartment. However, it happens that the construction delays due to some reason. If it exceeds the limit of the time-frame, you can put pressure on the builder on the basis of the agreement.

2. Size of the Home:

The agreement must mention the area of the house you are purchasing. There is a clause stating that the developer can modify or make variations in the plan and designs. Make sure you go through this clause, as in the end, you may get a different size than the promised area of the house. To avoid this situation, ask the builder to mention a range of the size, so that later you are not bound to pay extra charges for an extra area.

3. Price hike Clause:

This is an important clause which you must not miss as it’s all about money. Many builders include this clause so that they can raise the price of the house. In the name of delay in construction, increase in the costs of raw materials, they try to extract money from the buyer. It’s better to discuss it at first, in the presence of a lawyer.

4. Certificate of Completion:

You have all the right to ask and own the completion certificate from the builder. It is a certificate that the builder must obtain from the municipal authorities after the completion of a building. It establishes whether the building complies with the approved plan and is built in accordance with all the safety norms and regulations. So, in case if it is not mentioned in the agreement, you can ask for the clause to be added in it.

Besides these four points, there are a lot of clauses which a builder-buyer agreement must contain. If not, you also have the right to add them. Shivalik Group always provides a buyer friendly agreement. As your dreams are more valuable to us, we always make sure to mention all the important clauses in the agreement and are open to discussing it with the buyer.

So, read and re-read the builder-buyer agreement to get what you always wanted and what you were promised.
