Client: Wipro Ltd.

Status: In Progress

Size: 16,00,000 sq ft | 101.3 acres

This corporate office for Wipro, one of India’s largest IT firms, is located in Hyderabad. With a 101 acres of site land, the project embodies the historical and cultural references of the region whilst being contextually relevant to these modern times. The morphology adopted for the project is that of ‘disintegrated courtyards’.  Rectangular volumes are stacked and rotated to create secondary courts whilst being planned around a central main open collection courtyard. All buildings are North-South orientated and the East-West edges are kept open to enhance wind movement and natural ventilation. Low wall-to-window ratios and narrow floor plates ensure optimum daylight, yet ensure low thermal absorption. The project is executed in earthy hues of clay bricks that also have low U-values, and make the façade energy efficient. Taking inspiration from the traditional waterfront structures such as ‘baoils’ and ‘ghats, a strategy to temper the microclimate was developed. Water is introduced as an experimental layer throughout the stepped landscape to bring down temperatures using evaporative cooling. Temperatures of the augmented breeze across the site are lowered as they are flow through a series of water curtain features, to mimic the working principles of a desert cooler.
