Student Housing, Institute for Plasma Research
- Gandhinagar, Ongoing
The premier scientific autonomous institute wanted an addition of guesthouse and student housing over an area of 5,000 sq m in the already existing research facility.
The student housing is in three separate hostel blocks and accommodates 32 students each in single rooms with facility for dining, library, and indoor games. The guest house in a separate block includes 16 guest rooms and 4 suites with dining and conference facility for visiting scientists. The organization of various buildings is focused on to the central green space so that each building block can take advantage of the view of this green space. The setting of buildings is highly integrated with the existing landform to minimize cut/fill on the site. The entire construction and all the external surfaces are in RCC and exposed brick.
