C P Kukreja wins design proposal for State Headquarters of Indian Oil Corporation in Punjab

C P Kukreja Architects
C P Kukreja Architects, India’s leading multi-disciplinary architectural and engineering firm, is set to design the State Headquarters for Indian Oil Corporation Limited at Mohali, Punjab. The firm has won the project through a National design competition wherein the winning firm was selected based on the architects’ understanding of three factors – corporate governance, climate responsiveness, and introducing workspaces thriving with culture. The 2.2-acre site is strategically located with access to public facilities and transportation. The project encompasses the design of the IOCL Headquarter Building, Senior Management Centre, Transit Camp, and Residences. With a striking façade, the fluidity of oil inspires the viscous curvaceous forms, instilling a sense of curiosity and allowing the edifice to emerge as a beacon of progress for the city.

Technology plays an essential part of design development and has been rigorously accommodated to safeguard the health provisions for the top management staff of IOCL as well as Ministerial and VIP visitors, their security and communication, along with ensuring an unhindered workflow at the office. A confluence of art in architecture, deriving inspiration from the industrial nature of the Corporation, inspires a fusion between high functionality and an aesthetic appeal to the edifice. The proposal also has been appreciated for its resolve to manifest as a net zero energy complex. Through careful implementation of energy, water and electricity conservation strategies, the architects present a visionary module of design which heralds as a smart development.
