Pradhan Mantri Sanghralaya, Teen Murti, Delhi

Located amidst the historic surroundings of Teen Murti in Delhi, the Pradhan Mantri Sanghralaya stands as a symbol of architectural brilliance and cultural significance. As the façade project manager, spearheading this iconic project marked a significant milestone in my career journey.

DESIGN CONCEPT

The design concept of the Pradhan Mantri Sanghralaya encapsulated a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity, paying homage to India’s rich heritage while embracing contemporary architectural principles. The façade served as the canvas upon which this vision unfolded, reflecting the ethos of the nation’s capital.

The cornerstone of the façade design lay in the meticulous installation of zinc cladding and roofing elements, symbolising strength, durability, and aesthetic finesse. The expansive area of flat lock panels spanning 22,000 Sq ft exuded elegance and uniformity, seamlessly integrating with the building’s architectural narrative.

Adding a touch of intricacy and texture, the sinewave perforations covering 6,000 Sq ft allowed for controlled daylight penetration and ventilation, enhancing the building’s functionality while adding visual interest. The standing seam roofing, covering 506 Sq ft, exemplified precision and craftsmanship, forming a seamless transition between the building’s exterior and the expansive sky above.

A crowning achievement in the roofing design was the creation of a 24-spoke structure with flat lock panels, culminating in a centre ring reminiscent of the national flag, symbolising the pride and integrity of the nation.
