Max House是Max Group of Companies旗下的优质房地产部门Max Estates开发的企业园区。项目坐落于新德里Okhla工业区,项目全部落成后将为这座绿树成荫的工业园增添两栋全新的共享办公建筑。两座新塔楼的设计旨在为当地提供充足的办公空间,此外,设计团队还将场地内现有的建筑改造为社区中心,并将其完美融入场地总体规划中,与新建塔楼形成和谐的关系。

Max House is a corporate campus developed by Max Estates, the premium real estate arm of the Max Group of Companies. Located in New Delhi’s Okhla industrial area, the development comprises two multi-tenant buildings placed within a verdant campus—two new towers designed to accommodate a myriad of workspaces and an existing building to be adapted into a community hub that integrates the ground plane of the towers.

Max Estates’ project brief succinctly underscored the need for a multi-storey office building that would ease into the landscape and nod to its context while aiming to set a benchmark for timeless architecture. The client expressed a desire for the building to echo the brand’s underlying design philosophy rooted in sustainability, resilience, and environmental harmony. The building was to be designed in a way that its architecture and interior expression would reflect responsible sourcing and use of materials and unite it with state-of-the-art workspaces and high-performance systems.

项目所在场地毗邻一条熙熙攘攘的大道,场地对面则是东西走向的高架轻轨,此外,场地距离巴哈伊灵曦堂 (Baha’i House of Worship)以及莫迪面粉厂等老牌工业建筑仅一步之遥,其中巴哈伊灵曦堂还是当地代表性的地标建筑和旅游景点。独特的周边环境与场地条件成为本项目总体设计的灵感来源与依据。

The site adjoins a bustling thoroughfare, sitting across from an east-west metro corridor, and is a stone’s throw from old industrial buildings such as the Modi Flour Mills and the Baha’i House of Worship, an iconic landmark and tourist attraction. This presented an opportunity for the studio to determine the development’s overall design vocabulary.

Since the development is in proximity to the Yamuna floodplain, the high water table meant that soil conditions in the area would prove to be unfavourable for deep excavations. Additionally, traffic impact analyses necessitated the need for a two to three-basement deep vehicular parking, thus posing an unusual challenge for the design team. To account for vehicular parking for the eight-storey Block A that was to come up on the site, a parking podium was devised that simultaneously opens up volume for the creation of a spacious triple-height reception lobby at the ground level. The resultant intervention also optimizes vistas — while the reception lobby offers occupants views of lush vegetation flanking the building, the terrace level from the first floor and onwards afford virtually unimpeded views of the Baha’i House of Worship, and the skyline beyond. Moreover, the podium has so been configured, along the building’s northwest, that its height is roughly the same as that of the adjacent railway colony, thereby maximizing views along this part of the building as well.

设计旨在于建筑的地面层设置一条宽阔的入库坡道方便车辆直接进入地下停车场,而场地周边则被预留给行人通道。实现人车分流的干预策略主要有两点:一是后退场地边界,将空间割让给城市和邻近的交通;二是采用绿色景观来软化场地的边界,使综合体与其周围环境之间形成更加紧密的空间与视觉联系。这种干预手段使建筑的前方形成了宽敞且极富渗透性的广场,使Max House超脱于典型的封闭式商业空间,与周围环境融为一体。

The buildings are planned to create a wide promenade on the ground level, to facilitate vehicular access up to the building line. The site periphery, in turn, has been reserved for pedestrian access. This access has been transformed through two primary interventions — the setting back of the site boundary to cede space to the city and the neighbouring traffic, and the softening of the site boundaries through landscaping to enable greater physical and visual connection between the complex and its immediate context. Through the formation of this expansive, almost porous forecourt, Max House integrates itself with its surroundings, a marked departure from typical gated commercial developments.

Max House独特的设计语言将其与周围的建筑区别开来,同时又使自身牢牢地嵌入到当地工业环境中,成为附近老莫迪面粉厂的当代工作空间诠释。塔楼的立面参考了面粉厂大楼,砖材与玻璃交替的立面节奏,辅以穿插其间的悬臂拱板、深置阳台以及社区露台,共同组成了本项目独特的设计语言。虽然底层空间主要为停车平台,但是底层屋顶却设有延伸的露台,能够为大楼的使用者提供额外的高架公园空间。

Distinguishing itself from its neighbours while remaining firmly embedded in its industrial context, the design vocabulary of Max House extends the narrative set by the old Modi Flour Mills in the vicinity and adapts it for a contemporary workspace. The tower’s façade references the Flour Mills building through its distinctive bands of alternating brick and glass, punctuated by spandrel panels, deep-set balconies and community terraces. While the ground floor is primarily allocated for the podium parking spaces, the first floor features extended terraces, doubling as an elevated park for the users.

The tower features a floor-to-ceiling height of 3.75 metres. The 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. The lift and service cores are positioned along the two ends of the buildings, creating an open, rectangular floor plate that allows for maximum flexibility in terms of use. The floor plate configuration, in conjunction with the facade’s significantly low wall-to-window ratio of 60:40 and shading spandrels to cut down solar glare, significantly elevate the passive design parameters of the building, a unique proposition in new-age office building design. The rooftop is designed to accommodate an event space and al fresco dining while providing visitors panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscape.

The design scheme extends the expression of exposed brickwork into the interiors, injecting spaces with a natural, ‘handcrafted’ appeal. While brickwork and glass blocks create the retro chic approach to the interiors of the triple-height lobby, neutral tones of stone and veneer imbue the surfaces with understated elegance. A collaboration with ROHA for the precinct’s landscape design aimed to harness existing resources, i.e. native vegetation and water, and mitigate the heat island effect. The interventions include an efficient stormwater management network as well as on-site water rainwater management treatments such as the integration of bioswales, infiltration trenches, rain gardens, bioretention areas, and open grid pavers in hardscaped areas.

The building envelope is designed using a two-pronged strategy to regulate the ingress of heat. The façade is composed of hollow brick masonry, insulated spandrel panels, and double-glazed glass units, significantly lowering operating costs. The narrow floor plates ensure that over seventy-five per cent of the occupied floor area receives optimal daylight across all building floors. Spill-out areas facilitate fresh air circulation to occupied spaces by at least thirty per cent above the minimum rates required by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Standard 62.1-2010. As many as eighty-two high solar reflective index (SRI) tiles will be installed on the roof to minimize the impact on the micro-climate and reduce heat gain and loss through the built volume.

通过整合被动式设计策略、采用可再生和低影响材料和技术,优化能源和水的消耗,本项目建筑获得了LEED金牌认证。Max House标志着德里商业区如雨后春笋般涌现的玻璃大厦海洋正在经历明显的转变。在这个转变的过程中,本项目致力于为印度商业建筑树立一个可持续发展的优秀范本。

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. In doing so, the project attempts to create an alternative benchmark for commercial architecture in the Indian context.
