A Series of Curvilinear Concrete Volumes Informs The Energy-Efficient Sports Complex by Sanjay Puri Architects in Jabalpur | Madhya Pradesh

Sanjay Puri Architects envisions a group of curving volumes to create 'Nirvana 63'- a sports club on a contoured site in Jabalpur -the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Taking into account the topographic condition of the place, the design team decides to position the building along the slope across three different levels that vary by 10 meters to prevent the trenching and excavation of the land as much as possible. To achieve the goal of creating an energy-efficient building and reducing its carbon footprint, the firm incorporated all-important sustainable architecture features such as the use of regional sandstone, water recycling & rainwater harvesting, solar energy harnessing & north orientation with screened volumes. The architecture firm has shared more details about the project with SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Take a look:

The layout of the Sports Complex

 As the sports club descends the landscape, each of the three levels of the building steps back with juxtaposed volumes opening into landscaped terraces overlooking a valley beyond.

Based upon the extensive requirements, the sports club is planned in zones with indoor games and entertainment areas each grouped along one side and the outdoor games grouped in the relatively flat part of the site.
