Tata Technologies Campus
The campus is on a large site located at the Hinjewadi Infotech Park in Pune. Instead of creating the usual large floor plates that provide the anonymous workspaces in most such dot-com facilities, the Tata Tech Centre is based on the concept of 'rent houses' in the United States, i.e. workspaces that are leased out as small computerized offices. Here, ten such centres are placed around three courtyards. Each technical centre is a self-sufficient house with accommodation on 3 levels, including a triple-height sky-lit courtyard, an open terrace at midlevel, a conference room, a pantry and toilets, so that each of them becomes a self-sufficient and independent 'house'. The houses, which are accessed from the arcades that surround the three large courtyards, have state-of-art security devices and access controls. They can be combined to form larger units, as the need arises, thus providing management with the flexibility needed to respond to different client requirements.
