One of the great Green Sustainable Modern Architectures of India, Patni Campus Noida is an example of Vidur Bharadwaj craftmanship. Mr. Vidur Bharadwaj, one of the most renowned Green architects. He has given sustainability, a whole new dimension where energy efficiency, low maintenance, and robustness are the main pillars.
Vidur Bhardwaj has immense experience and knowledge in the field of green architecture. He has used his vast expertise in designing Patni campus and make it a big success.
Patni Campus, widely known as Patni Knowledge Center is located in suburban region of Noida. Thanks to the environment friendly concepts integrated into the design of this building, it is the second largest Platinum rated LEED Certified Green Building by IGBC, for Block A and Block B. The campus was also awarded GOLD rated LEED Certified Green Building, the highest recognition to be bestowed by the council. The structure has embraced landscaped beautiful courtyards with water bodies, plants and sculptures as visual nodes, which enhance and bind the space.
There was an attempt to incorporate sustainable development of the campus. The structure has been inspired by the traditional inward look – “The Havelli Plan”; the modest idea of simple straight line, low-key architecture in context with the surroundings, site and climate. Architectural and mechanical electrical strategies have been designed in a way to optimise energy consumption.
The front of the building opens up towards the courtyard, increasing the transparency. The elevation of the edifice has been inspired by the “Indian Havelli Jharokha”. The building depth captures natural sunlight in more than 75% of the of the occupied interiors and also maximises outdoor view. The exterior shade of the building helps to cut off heat from the sun and traps glare free light. The indoor water bodies cut the temperature of the interiors. It also gives a beautiful appearance to the interiors of the building. The courtyard is a light well, a microclimatic generator and a landscape element. The active and passive features of the building help in saving up to 40% energy of the campus when compared with the other buildings. This helped huge reduction of heat in the complex. Maximization of landscape areas and a substantial reduction in heat island effect. More than 50% of the land has been kept for the green to increase the porosity of the site.
The campus has embraced zero discharge development, rain has been harvested and used in the towers. The sewage water has been recycled and used for watering the garden and flushing. Solar water heating, drip irrigation and native and low water consuming plants have been planted for effective water management strategies. The car parking is at the basement and movement of the vehicle is ensured by the peripherals of the complex.
