Institute for integrated learning in management campus

Contextually responding to its harsh local microclimate, the project was conceived to fortify itself from the external environment and create a relevant oasis-like internal environment. This resulted in the inward-looking morphology, with a high thermal mass on the outer faces that blocks out the hot winds predominant in the region.

The project is designed to have a low wall-to-window ratio; furthermore to thermally buffering each unit and reducing solar gain from the façade of the building, toilet shafts are moved to the exterior faces of each unit. Deep recessed windows provide shade and help in controlling optimum daylighting.
