Tata Consultancy Services’ new software development campus encompasses 2.1 million SF of space housing more than 16,000 employees. Spread across a 40-acre site, the design of the campus was inspired by the important role courtyards play in traditional Indian architecture, specifically the role they play in fostering community interactions. As such, the entire site — including the buildings themselves — is filled with courtyards, dynamic building scales framing the courtyards, and a diverse sequence of landscaped spaces.
The campus architecture is defined by two 15-story towers. The north side of the towers are clad in high-efficiency clear glazing with distinct ceramic frit patterns and sun shading devices. The south side integrates metal paneling into the façade and a number of framed terraces and public spaces, including a five-story courtyard in which employees from different floors can come together and interact.
