Studio Saar：新兴建筑事务所Studio Saar为印度跨国电子制造商Secure Meters在萨南德（印度古吉拉特邦一个以汽车制造闻名的城市）完成了一个专门的工业设施。Secure Sanand的设计旨在创造一个令人振奋的工作环境，提高员工福利，同时减少能源消耗，包括最先进的生产设施、员工食堂和娱乐中心、一个面积在一到三英亩之间波动的季节性湖泊，以便于雨水收集，并将在现场种植2000棵树。
Studio Saar：Emerging architecture practice Studio Saar has completed a purpose-built industrial facility for Indian multi-national electronics manufacturer Secure Meters in Sanand, a city in the Indian state of Gujarat famed for automobile manufacture. Secure Sanand has been designed to create an uplifting work environment and promote staff wellbeing while reducing energy consumption and includes state-of-theart manufacturing facilities, a canteen and recreational hub for staff, a seasonal lake that fluctuates between one to three acres in size to allow for rainwater harvesting and will see an additional 2,000 trees planted on the site.
The expandable factory building was designed by the architects to be built in phases, allowing for production to commence in record time. Drawing on the client’s ethos that places employee wellbeing at the forefront of its operations, the ambitious development provides an inclusive environment for workers that seeks to promote communication and collaboration, breaking down silos and challenging the strong sense of hierarchy often found in manufacturing work environments.
Secure Sanand坐落在一块 25 英亩的场地上，该场地以前是一个湖床，已被重新利用并指定用于工业发展。 Studio Saar的总体规划在场地内创建了三个不同的区域，分别用于生产线、员工休闲和访客参观。 该方案包括四栋建筑：主要生产设施、公用设施间、食堂和娱乐中心以及接待大楼。 这些建筑物由有遮蔽的人行道连接在一起，人行道上覆盖着白色的、起伏的风筝状织物顶棚，可以抵御天气，同时兼作引导用户穿过场地的导向工具。
Secure Sanand is situated on a 25-acre site, a former lakebed, that has been repurposed and designated for industrial development. Studio Saar’s masterplan creates three distinct zones within the site for manufacturing lines, employee recreation and for visitors. The scheme comprises of four buildings: a main manufacturing facility, utility bay, canteen and recreation centre, and reception building. These buildings are brought together by sheltered walkways that are covered with white, undulating kite-like fabric canopies that provide protection fromthe weather, while doubling up as a wayfinding tool to guide users through the site.
The main manufacturing wings consist of large open plan spaces, enabling additional work lines as well as a high degree of flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of the workforce. The utilitarian buildings have a clear design language. A white colour palette was chosen for the structure and surface finishes, providing a lighter ambience, while grey stone cladding roots the scheme in its surroundings. The buildings feature distinctive sawtooth façades that reference early industrial architecture, allowing natural light to infiltrate the working areas below and provide a space for solar panels which generate up to 50% of the overall energy demand. With a highly efficient thermal envelope, the buildings are insulated to reduce the heat generated inside and an integrated floor-cooling system improves cooling within, providing a comfortable working environment throughout.
An entrance building is situated adjacent to the manufacturing facility. Covered by a tilted open canopy that welcomes visitors inside, the building houses meeting rooms, the APJ Abdul Kalum training room, changing and locker rooms, and a medical centre. It is designed to be open and welcoming to all. While ensuring only staff that have been screened can enter the factory premises. The super structure is independent of the pods below, allowing Secure to morph the use of each individual component, without compromising the whole.
A canteen and recreation hub, which sits at the heart of the development, is designed to counter the white, functional appearance of the manufacturing and utility buildings, and is a playful addition to the site. Exposed concrete is juxtaposed with a characteristic corten steel entrance canopy, distinguishing the leisure area from neighbouring work areas on the site. Housing a gym, recreation area, canteen, and kitchen, with 300-degree views out over the surrounding trees, the building is designed to provide a relaxing atmosphere for staff. The building allows for the creation of a heat stack and wide cantilevers protect the building from the sun. The air is cooled by water source cooling and circulated around the building.
Further demonstrating the scheme’s flexibility, for four months during the Covid-19 pandemic, the canteen was repurposed to provide temporary workers’ accommodation enabling them to continue working and provide for their households. The building’s design as a multifunctional hall allowed Secure to create single accommodation units containing a bed, small storage unit and power for charging electronic devices. Through a bespoke ventilation system, the air was treated with both passive and active ventilation systems, meeting the highest air quality standards required for employee health during the pandemic.
Due to the site’s potential flood risk, the development incorporates a seasonal lake that expands from one acre to three acres during the moonson period, allowing 100 percent of rainwater to collect on site and be stored in the lake for longer periods. The lake is surrounded by ground water recharge wells that slowly filter water back to designated underground reserves.
Designed to reinforce the user’s relationship with nature, the routes in and out of the site are lined with 600 newly planted trees to curate a smooth and enjoyable journey for workers travelling between work and home. Existing trees on the site, which were home to a flock of weaver birds, were retained and given a wide berth to protect the habitat. An additional 2,000 trees will be planted in the surrounding areas in the future, further contributing to employees’ wellbeing and the client’s ongoing commitment to reforestation.
Secure Meters首席运营官Sridhar Radhakrishan表示：“建筑实际上关系着人的健康。人们希望在一个他们每天停留大量时间的空间里感觉良好。Saar工作室清楚地了解这一需求，并为我们做了一项了不起的工作，设计了这个远超我们想象的办公园区。建筑师亲自参与了我们从开始到完工的扩建工作。在与各利益相关者的密切合作下，整个项目在不到9个月的时间内以创纪录的速度完成了一个实用性极强的创新设计。”
Ananya Singhal, Co-founder of Studio Saar, said: “We were keen to demonstrate to our client how factories should and can be inspiring places to work and bring joy to the people that use them. By placing the canteen at the centre of the development, we have been able to provide a place for workers to relax and unwind. This project has not been without its challenges, but through close collaboration with the project team and efficient engineering we have been able to create a series of buildings that are genuinely adaptable to meet the everchanging needs of the teams to ensure its longevity for future years.”
Sridhar Radhakrishan, Chief Operating Officer at Secure Meters, said: “Architecture is really about wellbeing. People want to feel good in a space where they spend significant time daily. Studio Saar clearly understood this requirement and did a terrific job for us by designing a campus that was so much more than we ever imagined. The architects were personally engaged in our expansion from inception through to completion. Working in close collaboration with various stakeholders to produce an innovative design that is also extremely functional, the entire project was also executed in record time in under nine months.”
Nitin Thatte, Secure Sanand Site Head at Secure Meters, said: “For me, working at the Sanand plant is a total pleasure. Every morning the site gives a very welcoming vibe and the heart is filled with pride to entre the premises. The sight of the canteen is something to cherish always and gives a sense of entering a 5 star hotel. The manufacturing shopfloor is handsomely ventilated by natural light and is really awesome to work in. The whole plant is neatly integrated with the manufacturing process and helps reduce human fatigue at the end of the day. This site is truly a world class facility and we ensure that it remains so, always. The team is motivated and likes to be a part of such an amazing atmosphere.”
Sustainability was a major driver of the design, and materials were chosen to respond to the client’s needs while meeting sustainability goals. All major materials including cement, sand, steel were sourced from local sites while the cladding was sourced from Udaipur, where Secure Meters is headquartered. The scheme has been awarded the highest platinum rating by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC).
