The site is graced by mature banyan trees and gentle sloping topography. The 600,000 square foot campus is comprised of low rise buildings clad with indigenous Indian granite and exposed architectural concrete. Large stone units are used for vertical sunscreens and visual features to bring scale to the linear structures. Walkways are clad with carved sandstone in a modern jail pattern to cast shade along the link between buildings. The balance of the facades feature glazed window wall and curtain wall strategically placed to take advantage of natural day lighting while minimizing direct sun exposure. The facade design features a rain screen concept that facilitates the ease of rinsing during rainfall to keep the facade clean.
