The form is a derivative of the spacial planning and the triangular site profile. The entrance facade with the staff and VIP areas, is articulated as a mural wall. Bright coloured folded stair ways created for students, have two wings for men & women independently and opens out to access doors into the auditorium and toilet clusters respectively. Canteen and informal areas are given at the rear student’s side where the staircase culminates. Barrier free design with physically handicapped toilet, 1:12 ramp access and separate wheelchair parking space along with the seating area. Natural lighting is facilitated through clerestory lighting and shaded glass shutters at corridors.
