Client: YWCA

Status: Built

Size: 1,09,000 sq ft | 1.3 acres

The design brief for the Institutional Development for YWCA at Dwarka, New Delhi called for a building to house academic facilities for a vocational training institute (management programs in PGDM and BBA) and residential facilities for a working women’s hostel. Additional shared services were to be incorporated such as a library, conference facilities etc. A phasing strategy was to be adopted with scope for additional expansion in the future. The number of students, AICTE norms etc. enabled the adequate functioning of the Business Plan and defined spatial and Programmatic constraints. The client brief put down a requirement of a campus which was to be completed within a stipulated restrained budget of approximately Rs 1200 per sq ft of built up area including all building services, furniture, air conditioning, power backup etc. which dictated the design approach to the project. An environmental design strategy was exercised to lower energy costs in the long run and Passive climate control methods were employed to reduce the dependence on expensive mechanical cooling and heating methods.
