Situated in the dense urban fabric, the new extension of Presidency University was designed as two vertical towers of 15 floors, rising a towering 63 m to achieve maximum FSI. Efficiency was the prime concern owing to available fund allocation. The functional rubric guiding the form was accentuated by a monolithic facade treatment pattern. The building’s robust and unassuming character is punctuated by deliberate voids in this pattern. This interplay of void and solid becomes one of the key elements of the project.
