Design Concept: The brief of the project called for the creation of a Green Office Building for Spectral Services Consultants who have always played an important role in the advocacy of Green Buildings. The LEED certified Platinum Green Building has been designed as per features specified by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The project proposes to superimpose harmoniously High technology and High craft in order to create a micro-climate conducive for indoor activities and at the same time interaction of the interiors with surroundings in a synergetic way.
The main Design Intention has been to achieve an unconventional Building Form to avoid a Box-Like structure imposed by the byelaws. One of the most prominent features of the Building is the Top Lit Atrium which not only lights up the indoor spaces but at the same time provides a sense of grandeur to the office interior.
The Building Fenestrations have been so designed such that almost 85% of the interior spaces are Day Lit. The vertical stone louvers have been effectively used to cut down the harsh sunlight from entering into the building especially from the N-W and S-W directions. These however allow the passage of wind.
