Max House, India
Located in Delhi’s Okhla industrial area, Max House is a corporate campus for Max Estates, comprising two multi-tenant buildings designed to accommodate a myriad of workspaces and an existing building to be adapted into a community hub.
The eight-storey office building nods to the age-old legacy of nearby industrial structures, such as the Modi Flour Mills Building. The building is designed to reflect the brand’s underlying design philosophy rooted in sustainability, resilience, and environmental harmony while aiming to set a benchmark for timeless architecture.
The building’s expansive forecourt is bound by low-height walls, maintaining visual connections with the adjacent road. To account for vehicular parking on this site close to the Yamuna floodplain, where deep excavations are unfavourable, the team devised a parking podium that simultaneously opened up the volume to create a spacious triple-height reception lobby.
The built form of the two towers has been articulated in local brickwork and glass. The façade is punctuated with deep-set decompression balconies and community terraces that also aid daylighting and natural ventilation, significantly lowering the building’s operating costs. The shallow floor plates and the modulating façade have been designed to ensure optimal daylight penetration without concurrent glare, almost eliminating the dependence on artificial means of lighting in the day.
Through the integration of passive design principles, use of renewable and low impact materials and technology to optimise both energy and water consumption, the building has received a LEED GOLD certification. Max House marks a pronounced shift from the sea of soulless glass towers sprouting across Delhi’s business districts. attempting to create an alternative benchmark for commercial architecture in the Indian context and redefine the skyline of New Delhi.
