Client: Chettinad Health City

Status: Built

Size: 59,400 sq ft

Chettinad Health City is a Global Centre for research and healthcare, and is located in Chennai. Limited resource was another key generator for the design. To use only that which was essential- namely acoustic material, became the starting point. Almost the entire surface developed from geometric tessellations resulting in a faceted and fluid surface texture across the entire auditorium. Lighting too, was designed in ribbon-like coves running within the acoustic board lines, creating a dynamic play of light and shadow across the auditorium. Resource optimization and a limited palette became the defining parameters of this solution by pushing a simple material like acoustic boards to create a tectonic play.
