This is the first IT office tower by Government of Andhra Pradesh in the capital city of Amaravati. This is a building in an area of 5 Acres designed to present a campus like setting. The design is aimed at achieving sustainable credentials apart from providing world class amenities, outdoor spaces and transition spaces.
The project responds to the local tropical climate by enhanced self-shading strategy resulting in a facade that has a visual rhythm and pattern. Computer CPU is taken as an inspiration to mould the office tower areas with a central service core.
Keeping with high ground water table in view one cellar with mechanical parking is provided and 4 stilts above ground are allotted to cater to the entire parking. Northern portion of the site is left open for all required, mandatory open space activities. All linear strips around the building have been tactfully landscaped to compliment the outdoor setting.
The design of upper levels gets divided into two tower blocks with innovative connectivity at 1 st and 2 nd floor and at the designated upper level. Such design has given opportunity to have maximum use on the entire periphery of three sides and uninterrupted office floor spaces tender flexibility to the design.
