Sanjay Puri designs stepped green roof for Prestige University

Mumbai based Sanjay Puri Architects has created a building for Prestige University in India that will have a stepped green roof punctuated with courtyards.

Planned to be achieved in June 2022, the low-rise building will be situated within Prestige University's existing 32-acre campus in Indore.

Developed to blend into its surroundings, the five-storey Prestige University will be a red-brick, stepped building that comes out of the ground and features a series of rooftop courtyards linked by small staircases.

Sanjay Puri, who founded his eponymous company in 1992, told the media that as opposed to forming an imposing edifice the building would be gradually stepped up from the approach direction, belying its 20 m height.

The building's roof covered with grass will be stepped up from its north side, creating its whole surface area an accessible terrace to be relished by students and staff.

As well as small courtyards developed for recreational activities, the terrace will additionally comprise different-sized open-air sections that will render the building's interior with natural ventilation.

Inside, a diagonal pathway will move across the length of the ground floor, which will additionally assist in opening up the building's internal spaces and filling them with fresh air.

These design features are prepared in response to the city's climate, which ranges from 30 to 40 degrees Celsius for eight months of the year, according to the architecture firm.

For easy access, administration offices, a cafeteria, and an auditorium will be situated on the building's ground floor. The library will be arranged in different spots across the first floor, which will be linked by a bridge that will overlook the diagonal "indoor street" below.

Classrooms will be on the second floor and will be ventilated by the open-air units above them. On the third floor, visitors will find more tiered classrooms, while administrative facilities will be situated on the fourth floor.
