Concept

The program of closed and partially open spaces have been created to enable learning in formal classrooms with ample scope for informal learning sessions in landscaped enclosures.

The Solution

The Nursing College, located in Thiruchendur, Tamil Nadu, is designed on a 17-acre site and is a part of a proposed Medical College campus. The orientation of the college is modeled to direct natural light to the classrooms while shielding the naturally ventilated rooms from heat and glare of the sun. Wind tunnels direct the ocean’s draft from the sea through lofts punched out of the facade.

The twin axes of the building set off at right angles to each other envelop courtyards and open spaces between them. These are landscaped with native plants and the courtyards liven up the doubly loaded corridors of classrooms and laboratories. Plastered brickwork and cladded walls on a horizontally emphatic building form provide the rhythm and cadence.
