Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
Situated within a 32-acre university campus, the main administration offices along with an auditorium, seminar halls, library & cafeteria form the functions of this building.As opposed to creating an imposing edifice, the building gradually steps up from the approach direction belying its 20 metre height.Stepped up from the northern direction, the entire terrace of the five-level building is accessible to the students and faculty of the university transforming it into an open auditorium amidst landscape.The multiple functional spaces within are interspersed with naturally lit landscaped courtyards allowing indirect light to infuse the internal volumes at each level.The north lighting & courtyards are imbibed from traditional Indian architecture creating an energy efficient sustainable building with minimal dependence on artificial lighting and air conditioning.The Prestige University is contextual to the climate of its location creating an energy efficient building.
