Comments Off on Nirlon IT Park in Mumbai Turns a Mill Compound into a Cutting Edge Campus

In a unique redevelopment of a mill compound, Venkataramanan Associates executed a high-tech environment for Nirlon IT Park in Mumbai, India. The architects took care to incorporate several Danish best practices to address flooding, a problem the city is prone to. As a result, a 250 meter long body of water runs through the site, forming the spine of the master plan with its elegant sweeping curve. Moreover, verdant terraces punctuate the mass of buildings offering a calming environment that is evocative of an older Mumbai. With highly sustainable and energy efficient buildings, when finished, the campus will be the first of this scale in India to achieve LEED certification . + Venkataramanan Associates The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
