The proposed hostel design for Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, develops a podium level interactive space following the contours of the site. The stilt level houses recreational and administration activities incorporated with vehicular and pedestrian accesses and walkways. The service core organise rooms and common areas around it at every floor in a manner that creates double-height break-out interactive spaces. A flexible plan incorporates possible future changes in the number of rooms for boys and girls. The existing institute building was remodelled with front portal and landscaped pathways.
Apollo Hospital Complex: Our team redesigned the hospital lobby at Apollo Hospital, Jubilee Hills campus. The form of the entrance porch is friendly for a public space. Introducing the concept of landscaped plazas instead of mundane waiting lobbies, the design blends human need into the built environment.
Apollo Temple Complex: Shaded canopy structure along with the use of louvers makes the temple complex an inviting human space. A unique pooja canopy, made of shaded trellis is integrated with the existing tree. Peripheral wall and flooring in the temple complex were redesigned.
