Adobe Campus, Noida
Architect – SWBI Architects Pvt. Ltd.
Area – 7 acres
Cost – 4 crores
Construction year – 2011-ongoing
The landscape for Adobe Campus is tightly integrated with building architecture.
The foreground is a sloped green over the stilt parking floor. The earth depth of around 2m is used to plant high Kadam trees in clumps, to soften the building facade. The entrance oval plaza sits in the centre of the sloped foreground, at a mid level from the driveway drop off and the building entry level.
All along the front street, running parallel to building front facade is a reflective pool with green islands, making it almost integral to the building architecture.
The back area is proposed for playfields like basketball, volleyball & cricket pitch. The roof of the auditorium block jutting out in that area is designed for informal seating / events. The phase two areas are designed as low maintenance greens.
The spaces are planned to be interactive, with local rugged planting, along with effective water harvesting as it is designed as a green campus.
