Client: Surat Diamond Bourse

Status: In progress

Size: 65,00,000 sq ft | 35 acres

Morphogenesis wins the architectural competition to design the world’s largest office building. India gives shine to 85% of the rough diamonds sold globally, with Surat being the capital of this trade. This upcoming bourse will accommodate over 4,000 offices of the diamond traders, aspiring to become the centre of the international diamond trade.  At over 65 lakh sq ft of built up area, the Surat Diamond Bourse, will provide employment to 1.5 lakh people. The enormity of the site posed the challenge to navigate large volumes of people through great distances. The strength of the Morphogenesis design strategy lies in ensuring that the building is truly unified both in the horizontal plane and in the vertical, through the ease of proximity to vertical circulation nodes. The interior spaces are all planned ‘inside-out’, pushing the idea of modularity for resource optimization in terms of structure, and hence cost efficiencies. With this project, which will be equipped with the state-of-the-art facilities that include safe deposit vaults, Customs clearance house, world standard convention centre, exhibition centres, training centres, entertainment areas, restaurants and a club, Surat inches closer to becoming the world’s diamond trading hub.
