VVIP Circuit house is government guest house which accommodates VIP, VVIP officials, ministers and a large number of visitors. It is a public building as it also acts as a node for political meetings, government authorities' discussions and conferences.

Design is based on climate responsive architecture with passive strategies for thermal and visual comfort along with innovative active strategies to achieve energy efficient green building. It is registered with GRIHA for green certification in five star category.
The contemporary architecture of this building has been derived from vernacular ethos. The shaded courtyard, which is the focal point of the building and passage around it leading to suites, is a highly contemporary version of the 'old chowk' of traditional Wadas of Pune with interiors and landscape seamlessly merging with architecture.
