In this video courtesy buildofy, Sunil Patil of Sunil Patil Associates discusses their design for the collector office in Pune, India. He highlights their desire save more than 100 existing trees on the project site and go beyond the original brief by catering to visitor comfort within the building. He also discusses the consideration of the natural light in deciding the size of the building’s floor plates, as well as their strategy in reducing the building’s foot print by introducing a parking block. He also speaks on the materiality of the building, the considerations that informed its massing as well as how user experience and accessibility influenced the design of tubular steel foot bridges connecting all the blocks of the complex.
Watch to video to learn more about the thought process in designing the building and read this article to learn more about the detail behind what makes the building work.
