Association for People With Disability (APD) | Bangalore 

TOTAL AREA, 64,000 sft. Campus Master-plan and building concept design for special needs institution, APD. Growing student enrollment, increasing programs, adjoining railway tracks and an insufficient existing building were the reason for our new endeavour.

 

Specific program and therapy requirements were the core of new building. Non occupied, utility spaces, ramps were placed closer to railway tracks to buffer the noise. Ground plus three floors, with basement parking was proposed. Administration offices were integrated with institution spaces. 

Compressed stabilized earth blocks, CSEB and other sustainable measures were introduced to reduce carbon footprint.  

Our involvement lead to the design for APD special needs park. The project was featured in TOI, Oct 2016.
