The project was a green field one and included the main academic block library café, student hostels and a multi-purpose hall. The plan was derived along two axes that interlinked student plazas and at the same time took advantage of the fabulous hill views the site offers. Break out spaces have been designed as an extension of the academic plaza to allow students to discuss case studies and increase informal interaction between students and faculty. Several passive and active energy conscious strategies have been adopted to make itself sustaining.
The campus is designed for 480 students and some on campus faculty. In addition accommodation has also been provided for visiting faculty as well. Academic work is planned around a courtyard which the various functions of classrooms, administration and faculty offices are accommodated. The roof is designed to admit northlight into allthe classrooms for a pleasant working environment.
The hostels there are 6 hostel blocks with double and single room configurations, the most recent one of which is the international student’s hostel. They were designed as linear blocks aligned to the contours with a tiered plaza connecting the blocks. The library and cafe blocks are situated at the top most portion the site have been located to take advantage of the fabulous views of the surroundings. The plaza designed at this level is a vibrant interactive zone which continuously used by students especially in the evenings.
