Project Features

1 Ashok Vij The use of glazing and the manner in which dead surfaces have 3 been placed minimises heating loads. Minimum glazing on the West side and glazing on the Southern side shaded with trees, creepers and architectural elements.
2 Blocking is done in such a way as to get have east-facing terraces. The cut-out is on the North to maximise light in the corridors and circulation spaces. This reduces heating and lighting loads for the entire building.
3 The building is oriented on an east-west axis to take advantage of solar orientation. Solar heat gain is maximised on the south side during the winters. Combined with the use of shading, it is minimised during the summer.
