Tata Consultancy Services Software Development Campus Fosters Community and Celebrates Indian Culture
Tata Consultancy Services’ new software development campus encompasses 2.1 million SF of space housing more than 16,000 employees. Spread across a 40-acre site, the design of the campus was inspired by the important role courtyards play in traditional Indian architecture, specifically the role they play in fostering community interactions. As such, the entire site – including the buildings themselves – is filled with courtyards, dynamic building scales framing the courtyards, and a diverse sequence of landscaped spaces.
“This is a transformative building that engages India’s rich history to guide its future,” says Mehrdad Yazdani, Design Principal for the project and Director of the Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign. “Rooted in elements that define India, the building also sets an exciting new precedent in line with the leading-edge technology services occurring within its walls. The building celebrates India’s past while pushing it to an even more exciting tomorrow.”
The campus architecture is defined by two 15-story towers. The north side of the towers is clad in high-efficiency clear glazing with distinct ceramic frit patterns and sun shading devices.
The south side integrates metal panelling into the façade and a number of framed terraces and public spaces, including a five-story courtyard in which employees from different floors can come together and interact.
“We can’t overstate the amount of cultural research and engagement the design team undertook for this project,” added Yazdani. “Materials, spaces, elements large and small, all of them are designed to be a touchstone for Indian culture that culminates in a state-of-the-art workspace.”
