The Presidential Towers are located in a new residential district of Lucknow, surrounded by other housing societies in close proximity. The main determinant of the morphology of this project was this very site condition; it helped provide an opportunity for the building to be placed centrally instead of a perimeter block. This also resulted in the creation of four large quadrants which further provided the opportunity for defining different uses in these areas. Another determinant was the incorporation of a commercial block which required the residential and commercial movement to be segregated. The detailed solar study analysis helped in defining the usage of the quadrants and the design of the building façade. The requirement of having a de-centralized air-conditioning system was amalgamated into the window recesses and the resultant façade allowed for environmental conditioning – both by passive and active means.
