Karle Town Center SEZ
Designed at Merge Studio, New York
Location: Bangalore, India
Status: Built 2015
Karle Town Center SEZ is a shell and core project for two neighboring 12 story IT office buildings in Bangalore, India. The design of the façade evolved with the ambition to maximize energy performance through passive strategies of shading to allow a maximization of glazing. A module of one column bay was created to simplify façade variation only to variate number of glass panels to metal panels. This variation creates a gradient between 3 glazing panels to 5 glazing panels depending on orientation to sun and context shading.
