MIXED USE TOWER @ KALAMASSERY, COCHIN


A BIO CLIMATIC APPROACH

INTRODUCTION
Mixed-use, the close physical integration of places for work, living, recreation,
entertainment and relaxation is an essential ingredient in creating sustainable
communities. In a very elementary sense, mixed-use development is just practical. It
places the day-to-day things we need to do in immediate proximity to each other. Less
transportation is required for daily life, and thus the massive amount of consumption
associated with transportation is minimized. There is less need for elaborate
apparatuses like cars, buses and transit systems. Fewer roads and railways are
required, consuming less land and creating less impervious cover. The need for parking
lots and garages is reduced. And, of course, consumption of fossil fuel or other energy
sources associated with transportation is minimized.

Mixed-use is practical and sustainable at both the individual level and at the level of
the larger society. It reduces an individual’s dependence on expensive and time-
consuming transportation modes that syphon resources from better long-term
investments. It diminishes infrastructure investments in roadways, transit systems,
and the operational and maintenance costs that accompany each, which act as a
constant drain on resources for local and regional governments.

AIM
To design a high rise mixed use tower with bioclimatic architecture approach.

OBJECTIVES
 To study how architecture contribute to the development of mixed use buildings.
 Analyse bioclimatic design principles for high rise mixed use buildings.
 Study existing standards and codes for high rise mixed use buildings.
 To design spaces which are close to nature and environment.
 Prioritise sustainable materials and techniques in building and incorporating services

SCOPE
 Analysis and incorporation of bioclimatic design principles in mixed use tower.
 Analysis and implementation of new design techniques in high rise architecture.

LIMITATIONS
The project is limited to planning of whole site plan and detailed layout of apartments,
commercial area, offices and recreational area.
