This office building in Naya Raipur is in same vicinity as the Forest and the PWD buildings. Built on a trapezoidal site, the building has been segregated into two masses. The sunken courtyard in the centre offers pleasing views for the people around and achieves optimum day light. Also by limiting the width of the floor plate to 25 m, dark and pungent spaces have been completely avoided.The use of horizontal shading devices, louvers and pergolas, murals depicting local culture in earthy tones and textures makes it an interesting fusion of modern, heritage and vernacular design. The building fulfills the parameters of a climate responsive design.
