The proposed location of the visitor centre is located to the south of Mulshi Lake at an approximate altitude of 900 meters above sea level. The site is locate in a rural setting and has no substantial structures nearby which might potentially cause overshadowing or micro level wind directional changes. A detailed site analysis was carried out using the Weather Tool software developed by Square One Research. The results of this study, guide the design process in a climate sensitive manner, making the best use of the available site conditions. The sun path diagram, detailed wind analysis, its direction & speed-pressure along with Rain water analysis, contributed in strict design parameters. Inclusion & execution of those heavily influenced the architectural blue print of the site development.
