Category – Institutional

The Indian counterpart of an international chain, the Academy is consciously enabled with local crafts, materials, and construction technologies. The design solution is marked by a highly effective zoning scheme: it crafts largely transformative and multi-functional spaces that blend together seamlessly, creating a benchmark in the design of technical centers.
