GN Studio

Building Energy Efficiency

Location : Greater Noida

Climatic Zone : Warm & Humid

This project was an artists’ studio in Greater Noida. There are two identical buildings without windows. Daylight penetrates through various vertical & horizontal slits in the buildings. The basement and ground floor are exclusively for studio work, with a trapezoidal shaped library at the mezzanine floor, and a residential suite on the first floor. IDSPL did the daylight analysis for the studio and used the daylight autonomy approach. Daylight autonomy takes into account facade orientation and user occupancy profiles, and considers all possible sky conditions throughout the year.
