Campus for Wipro
July 7, 2021
This corporate office for Wipro, one of India’s largest IT firms, is located in Hyderabad. With 101 acres of land, the project embodies the historical and cultural references of the region whilst being contextually relevant to these modern times. The plan for this office campus is evolved from understanding the carrying capacity of the site; a capacity determined by functions like energy, water, geology of the land, along with essential rules of urban design pertaining to light, ventilation and shading. With an estimated EPI of 30, this development sets out to be net-zero on energy, water, and waste to landfill. To offset the water needs, the site has been analysed for water catchment zones, with all surface run-off intended to be used to create a water reservoir.
