With an attempt to explore and amalgamate a relationship between local technology and energy efficient techniques, evolved the design of OIL HOUSE, Jodhpur Building. The oil house is designed to portray a modern IT enabled, energy efficient and environment friendly state of the art, functional building.
The building floor plate and its volumetric composition have been done to maximize daylight. Elevation and sections have been worked out to cut South, East and West sun by overhanging angular projections, pergolas and thick landscape. Narrow floor plate is used to maximize daylight and save on artificial lighting. It is a portrayal of innovative energy efficient techniques, with the use of local and modern materials in right proportions. It also sets an example on how energy efficiency can be enhanced by integrating advances in architecture and locally available technology.
