Project highlights

  • Irradiation mapping and wind analysis studies to get courtyards and alleyways shaded to act as ‘cool air ponds’.
  • Wind analysis to create a network of enclosed courtyards to allow cool breezes to flow through in mid season and winters & keep the harsh hot summer winds out.
  • Different shading devices were designed for different levels and orientations that helped in adding interest to the facades.
