Building Type Alphabetical Chronological Engineers India House - New Delhi  
  Building Type - Offices
  Year - 1983
  The building is the first major office to be constructed within the Bhikaji Cama Bazaar area. The aim was to create an air-conditioned office space which would have the least possible initial outlay and subsequently minimum running expanses.

The form of the building is derived with the aim of saving energy. The service cores are designed in such a manner that they also cut down harsh glare from the south-west, The stepping of floors within the cores and extending different floors to the east and west ends of the building, creates a zone of surface under shadow, thus reducing temperatures. The structural cores along with the extended floors form a giant sunbreaker.
