Situated in dense Mumbai, the proposed College is surrounded by an educational institute and a few housing societies. Land being premium in Mumbai, the area program demanded maximum utilization of space. The architecture of the college also needed to make an iconic statement and leave a lasting impression from its surroundings. The front face of the site faces the west and other sides offer limited views. Considering these challenges, the building surfaces has been wrapped with a “Green” skin inter spaced with GRC jalis. The “biophilic” facade seeks to connect the building occupants more closely to nature creating a productive and healthy environment. The skin also acts as a buffer from extreme weather conditions and ambient sound pollution.
