Location: New Delhi, Delhi, India

Project Work Status: Completed Projects

Area: 890 Sq.Mt

Client: Jamia Milia Islamia University

Team: Praveen Rajput, Maulik Bansal

Project Duration: 2005 - 2010

A Cafeteria in a University Campus located near Auditorium, Cultural Center, Mass communication, was expected to become hub of all social activities of the Campus. Due to the extreme climatic conditions of New Delhi, where the summer sees temperatures of above 45 degrees centigrade, and the winters often see temperatures below 5 degree centigrade. Most student canteens in India are not air-conditioned, and are often poorly ventilated, making them very hot and oppressive in the summer and very cold in the winters. This canteen was proposed as a "Semi open air Cafe". This allowed to have an ambient temperature for most of the year along with good ventilation, and a variety of degrees of shade from the climate. The design is truly unique and contemporary and we feel, will herald a new age of Architecture for the University.
