Architect – Morphogenesis
Area – 36 acres
Construction year – 2017–Ongoing
This Project is in Surat over 35 acres of land for the offices of Surat Diamond Bourse trust.
The landscape intent here is to create an outdoor environment for enhancing collaborative natural energy to help productivity, health & happiness quotient of people. And also to help make indoor living offices, a more desirable work place in turn improving the physical, visual & functional quality of open spaces.
The master layout of building blocks gives rise to outdoor space zones in a courtyard setting.
The landscape concept is to relate these ten courtyards to five natural elements –
Vayu, Agni, Prithvi, Jal and Aakash and the ten cardinal directions.
The centre or the Brahmasthan of each court represents its respective element making each court unique. Each of these has zones for informal meetings, alfresco eating, outdoor recreation etc. besides central anchor element co-relating to panchabhutas.
