Titan campus in Bangalore
At the the Titan Integrity Campus in Bangalore, architects applied this strategy to create a building that integrates with nature. The project resulted in a 30% reduction in energy consumption and also achieved a five-star Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA).
 Bringing nature inside
The longer sides of the building face north, which brings in glare-free natural light. The interior of the building also has light sensors to balance the environment with sunlight and control the appropriate levels for the working environment.
The breeze passes through the building so common spaces are open and do not require air conditioning. To cut off the western sun, green walls and green buffer spaces are created for a non-obstructing workflow.
What makes this building different is not just its biophilic design but also the reflection of the architect’s love for curves and parametric design.The lake around the building gives office workers the sense they are in a zone to play and work, and they are free to roam around the building through long pathways linking all the floors and different blocks.
