Commercial IT Buildings Smart City - Kochi (India)

Project proposal (Bangalore)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


This project studied a rather sensitive integration of big office towers for Indian IT companies in a lush green area next to a river at Kochi’s Smart City. In order to mitigate the big volumes, the towers are softly rounded over egg-like shaped floor plans. They have different heights and the fit out (test) proves them very efficient.

The requirements to accommodate parking cars on the plot let the towers hover over a multi-level parking podium. Due to the high water table basement parking was not possible to do.

From the entrance square at the bottom of the podium the pedestrians move all the way up to the podium via escalators. The buildings get accessed from the top podium level. The exterior shell of the podium contains shopping, fitness and restoration facilities, so do the lower floors of the tower next to the pedestrian square.
