SUFI -Startup Farms India
The Plan form at SUFI has evolved due to the unique requirements of a multi user Incubator, with meeting and office areas stacked over each other. Large open-plan work floors, include an extra floor plate in some private work zones. The ground floor plan is utilized for public functions – training, cafeteria, meeting spaces and demonstration rooms. Thereafter, the Plan form which is also shaped by the Sun and Movement Patterns; the West and South facades have deep shaded balcony spaces providing graded light penetration to the workspaces during the summer months and during winter months as an outdoor sunlit, interactive / Huddle space.

At SUFI, the openness of the social areas and the integration between outdoors and indoors were an important concern; this was realized through the resolution of the architectonic forms, and to the detailing of the doors of the facade that hide completely behind a providential wall with their trail inlaid in the floor, free of unevenness between interior and exterior. The sights of Outdoor informal hangout spaces with small gardens are seen through the glass lined movement corridors and staircase cores.
