SPORTS ACADEMY AT RAJARHAT,KOLKATA RESTAURANT BLOCK & GYMNASIUM BLOCK These blocks connect the physical centre of the design, the football field, with the psychological centre of the site, the water-body. In addition, functional spaces like sports shop and gymnasium, which are predominantly used by sportspersons, are located in close proximity to the sports facilities. The gymnasium block possesses a viewing area, banquet hall & lobby on the first floor for special guests & visitors. The elevation treatment contains rectangular niches on walls which are differentiated from the surrounding white texture, by using brick colors.

ARCHITECTURAL THESIS – DETAILS & VIEWS:

SPORTS ACADEMY AT RAJARHAT,KOLKATA HOSTEL BLOCK & STAFF QUARTERS The hostel block has been strategically placed in order to satisfy the following parameters: i) ORIENTATION: The hostel block is aligned in E-W direction to avoid the East/West sun, as the solar intensity of the West sun during the afternoon hours is very high . But, for staff quarters, the deep balconies minimize the effect of the West sun. ii) PRIVACY & SECURITY : The boys’ and girls’ hostels are separated by a wall at the central portion at all the floors & also at the roof level. The ground floor contains the common kitchen with segregated dining areas.
