"SP Infocity", situated near Hadapsar, a suburb of Pune, is an 80 acre campus comprising of IT buildings, a club complex and a small residential enclave. The Master plan is developed within a circular peripheral road with the major buildings following the curvilinear geometry to keep the harmony.
The Central Plaza plays a major role as it serves as a spill-over space where the hard working IT professionals come to de-stress and soothe their nerves.
A series of fountains present in the plaza, apart from being a visual attraction, also help to cool down high summer temperatures at micro-climatic level.
The club house complex, offers its members such out door recreation facilities as swimming, tennis, jogging, openair entertainment etc. A large party lawn can accommodate upto 1000 people. The club serves as a nucleus around which the entire IT complex is built.
Landscape, however, becomes the unifying factor which binds all the diverse built elements physically as well as visually.
The unique architectural design of IT Building No. 4 creates an opportunity to develop a two acre garden on the podium over parking. The ground coverage lost to cars is thus claimed back by creating this landscape over the concrete slab.
