Apollo Tyre’s Chennai R& D Center receives the NDTV Design & Architecture award 2016
Apollo Tyre’s last year opened Global R&D Centre, Asia bagged the NDTV Design & Architecture Award 2016 under the ‘Architecture Award, Office’ category.
The center of the company was designed and conceptualised by Chennai-based independent architectural design practice, Calm Studio.

Considering the harsh weather conditions in this coastal city, Apollo Tyres Global R&D Centre, Asia has been crafted within a ‘shelter’, with its own inherent quality of light, shade, visual and sensory appeal, and pulse. The shelter or envelope was developed using a perforated screen that embraces within it the interior and exterior spaces of the building, and allowing for a vibrant and manageable landscape. The work stations, guest areas and ancilliaries have been housed in transparent modular units, ensuring maximum daylight in all areas, and which can be easily multiplied. Energy saving being the key guiding factor in the design, the ‘shelter’ helps in cutting radiation, heat and glare. This project has also been certified LEED Gold.
The highly coveted NDTV Design & Architecture Awards focuses on the complexities of building project from a design, aesthetic, sustainability and conservation perspective, as well as a strong sense of purpose. The awards takes a collective view of the results confidentially selected after rigorous assessment by the Jury comprising eminent architects and interior designers.
