Atrium Tower | Amit Khanna Design Associates

Located on Najafgarh road, one of the busiest roads of Delhi, the 7-storied enormous ‘Atrium Tower’ stands out, making it a landmark structure in Moti Nagar. Designed by Amit Khanna Design Associates, the tower is surrounded by other commercial buildings with an average size of 3 storeys on both sides. The spatial planning was done so that the core is aligned with the longer side of the site, giving the building a clear vision of the park and the bustling road in the front. The louvres cover the north-facing core covered with glass that allows glare-free daylighting to enter the space. The architecture practice has shared more about the project with SURFACES REPORTER (SR). Read on:

The site lies on the busy road of Delhi, containing a large and serene DDA park on the backside. This disparity in the surroundings in front and backside of the location set the ground for spatial planning.

The average height of the other adjacent buildings is 3-storey, while the Atrium tower is a giant 7-storey structure that stands out in the skyline of Moti Nagar.

Spatial Planning

The core of the building lies on the longer side of the site giving the structure a clear vision of the park in the backside and the bustling road in the front.

The entry of the building is given on the longer side, making it look grand in this linear scheme with a double-height foyer. 

Glass Façade

Glass is the obvious choice for the facade to control the light and heat gain.

Atrium Tower_AKDADGU panels have been used with an insulating board on the back of the panels and the floor slab and sill, which helps the frame of the building look invisible from the front and allows light to enter the habitable areas incorporated into the design.

A Refuge Area

Since the building is seven storeys a refuge area had to be planned which has been provided facing park, this also acts as open space at 5th floor.

A Parking Space

Car lifts to the basement have been provided instead of the conventional ramp to give a maximum area on stilts. This also makes more area of car parking in the basement. 

Although the Atrium Tower appears a typical commercial building, this landmark structure epitomes a wise planning scheme and suitable material selection.
