NZEB Series | Net Zero Design Show Case – Student Housing at St Andrew

April 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Climate Responsive Design is fundamental to achieve the Net Zero Energy goal. St.Andrews student’s hostel at Gurugram, India by Zero Energy Design Labs (ZED) embodies this and more. The design prioritizes thermal comfort and functionality to become an exemplar of zero energy design. Strategies such as appropriate form and orientation, materiality and creation of spaces in the hostel block are based on climatic conditions, sun path analysis and air movement. Sachin Rastogi, the project architect will be sharing the process from concept to occupancy.

ZED Lab is a Delhi-based, research-driven, architecture and interior design studio specializing in net-zero energy buildings. The firm works collaboratively to formulate strategies that draw inspiration from the Indian vernacular for present and future needs. The studio seeks to push the envelope for economically viable building systems, optimized for energy savings.

About the speaker:
Sachin Rastogi
Founder Director and Design Principal of Zero Energy Design Labs, Architect Sachin Rastogi pioneers designs of buildings that are focussed on energy efficiency and zero energy consumption. Through his work at ZED Labs, he has led the design process and been responsible for a range of prestigious projects across diverse typologies such as residential, hospitality, institutional, commercial and industrial- all focused on zero energy buildings, that qualify the global standard of green building design. Rastogi’s expertise lies in passive and low energy solutions for high rise residential buildings in composite climates. To him, sustainability is not an isolated layer in design, but an indispensable component that enhances the experience of the built environment.

This webinar is part of ‘NZEB Knowledge Series’ – an initiative supported by USAID’s MAITREE program (http://maitree.edsglobal.com) to accelerate the discussions and catalyse actions on Net Zero Energy Buildings in India.
