An Eco- Friendly Cam­pus

Architecture + Design - - Calicut Practices - Project: Cy­ber­park Kozhikode, Cali­cut, Ker­ala

Build­ing fol­lows the hilly ter­rain. The ar­chi­tect en­deav­ours to pro­mote an en­vi­ron­men­tal de­vel­op­ment based on high per­for­mance and is com­mit­ted to mak­ing a cleaner and greener en­vi­ron­ment.

The de­sign which is based on green de­sign prin­ci­ples has floor plates which are nar­row in plan for max­i­mum day­light and ven­ti­la­tion. The mas­ter plan fol­lows a lin­ear lay­out which fol­lows the ex­ist­ing con­tours

to min­i­mize cut­ting and to re­tain the ex­ist­ing ground con­di­tions. Glazed walls dom­i­nate the north and south fa­cade with bal­conies on the east and west façade. The roof has veg­e­ta­tion wher­ever pos­si­ble so as to re­duce the im­pact on the sur­round­ings.

The ar­chi­tects have planned the com­plete mas­ter plan in­cor­po­rat­ing the sus­tain­able de­sign prac­tices and prin­ci­pal. These are made pos­si­ble by adopt­ing var­i­ous

in­no­va­tive and sci­en­tific meth­ods in the ar­eas of solid waste man­age­ment, rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing, en­ergy con­ser­va­tion and waste wa­ter re­cy­cling to name a few. Rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing, con­ser­va­tion and re­cy­cling of wa­ter, state- of- the- art waste dis­posal sys­tems, en­ergy sav­ing de­vices and use of so­lar en­ergy wher­ever pos­si­ble are a few in­no­va­tive meth­ods which make the de­vel­op­ment a very eco- friendly cam­pus.
