The new Adobe Systems research and development centre designed by SWBI Architects in Noida, India is an energy-efficient campus for more than 2000 IT technicians.
A practical building designed to maximise energy conservation and minimise ecological footprint, it achieves LEED Platinum level and sets a new standard for the design of workplaces in India, a theme of growing importance in the country.
The architects integrated these global principles with artistic expressionto create practical, vibrant workspaces with attentively designed recreational facilities inside and outside the building: a multipurpose hall, a gym, outdoor courtyards, lounge areas and a cafeteria.
The campus is part of an integrated master plan, permitting its construction to be planned in separate phases. The architects have designed a series of courtyards and panoramic pathways with plenty of water and plants to invite workers to stroll
