Client: YWCA

Status: Built

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

The campus of YWCA establishes a socio-educational anchor in the rapidly burgeoning sub-city of Dwarka, Delhi, India. It houses two distinct but interrelated functional programs: residential facilities for working women and academic facilities for their vocational training. The design process was driven by a critical investigation of the building’s immediate urban and social context. It addresses Morphogenesis’ core design philosophy of sustainability that is viewed through the lens of culture, community, environment, and economics. Together, they craft a secure and vibrant learning-living habitat, that is focused on enhancing collaboration and optimizing the management and use of shared spaces and resources. The morphology of the building has been moderated to create a barcoded rib that serves a dual function of providing shade and acting as storage devices on the inside. The built mass is arranged around a courtyard and houses offices, classrooms, a library, and dormitories. Multiple openings, verandahs, courtyards, and terraces, allow visual permeability, providing porosity to the built volume, whilst serving as outdoor learning and social spaces. The YWCA is a charitable institute and in keeping the ethos, the architectural response has been cost-effective and impactful, sufficient for the design to support the functionality and fostering a sense of being within the campus. Morphogenesis’ design approach aims at nurturing a sustainable thought process in the students and generating a sense of pride for the building by creating a distinct identity
