Project Description
The Centre for Culinary Arts and Hotel Management at Surat will be an institution that focuses on food as well as teaches students about hotel
management- it will provide a place where food preparation and the enjoyment of food are integrated into the campus and the life of the city.
The institution is intended to be a building for the education of as many as 200-220 students, a primary symbol of the value of the hospitality industry
and a generator of form in an evolving urban neighbourhood.
The Institution can act as a key link between food culture and the culture of the street. On one hand it can help to blur the boundaries between the
institute and the city and, on the other hand, can provide an intense learning environment.

Academic Program
The course of study will be:
4 year course in Hotel Management and Catering Technology (30 students each yr)
3 year course in Food Preparation and Culinary Art (20 students each year)
1 year diploma in Bakery and Confectionary (20 students)
Another courses engaging general learning for public (20 students)
Members of public will attend classes in order to develop a greater appreciation for food and the culinary arts.

The Site
Surat nu jaman, Kashi nu maran going by the old saying in Gujarat, the site is situated in Surat which is a foodies delight and has contributed to giving the world many
new dishes to savour from. The city already is famous for its local hawker food and small food joints that can be seen at various edges and streets.
The Veer Narmad South Gujarat University (V.N.S.G.U.) already houses a lot of various programs for education of the youth. This program can add another feather to the cap
of the variety of educational fields to choose from. Also, the university road, where the site is located has many hawkers which can again be integrated to be a part of the public
plaza hence giving more chances of interaction and use by local public.

Architectural Challenges and Opportunities


The site houses already a lot of educational institutes. The challenge here will be:
To provide a better institutional campus.
Dealing with an upcoming urban edge in this part of the city.
Since the program also houses a 3-star hotel, so dealing with a defined public and student interface.
The project will also help to develop an understanding of physical and sensory qualities that facilitate the design of learning
environments for students in the culinary and hospitality field.
Responding to site conditions in relative scales, from that of the pedestrian user to that of the building in a larger urban
context constructing a variety of public and private spaces, the sum of which will create a building that is concurrent with
the projects urban and programmatic goals.

INSTITUTE OF HOTEL MANAGEMENT AND CATERING

(PUNE)

This institute started functioning in the year 1974.


The new building is located in Model-Colony area near Senapati Bapat road, Pune. This huge white structure is
a very recent development in this area hence, it cannot be missed.

The building of the institute stands towering above


the rest of the buildings in Model Colony. Entrance is
marked by a porch and two columns rising above it
and supporting a part of the roof.
Coffered slab of entrance porch helps in breaking the
monotony of the structure.
No separate parking space is provided, hence a lot of
commotion is created on the paved areas.

FIRST

FLOOR

Long/ dingy corridors need artificial lights throughout the day.


Not much breathing space is provided. In the name of recreational area, a small back lane basketball
like an alley is provided.
Also, no spaces are designed where the institutes art of cooking and food can be presented on a city
level, so as the interaction between the public and the culinary artists can increase.
INSTRUCTION KITCHEN where a number of students work
collectively on one platform. Different works are assigned to
each student working on the platform.

Small recreational basket ball


court.

A temporary setting is
sometimes done in the dining
area, where students can hone
their skills as culinary artists as
well as people from hospitality
management can put to use the
theoretical knowledge into
practical use.

SKILLS KITCHEN where


more experienced students
are given the job of preparing
meals and display their skills
individually. Here, one
student works on one
platform.

STUDIO BAKERY is a
studio set up, where baked
goods as well as chocolates
are prepared by students.

At some places the work platforms are not


designed keeping in mind the equipments
available, hence the spaces get cluttered.

LITERATURE CASE STUDY:

JOHNSON & WALES CULINARY ARTS SCHOOL

(NORTH CAROLINA)

13

The project is a 156,000 sq ft project whose construction started in September 2002, and
was completed in July 2004.
The effect of the restrictive urban site was that the building would obviously have to be
vertical; yet the nature of the culinary arts program is horizontal, where there is a desire for
an easy connection and progression between event space and kitchen area to make food
service manageable. The building unfortunately makes this aspect very difficult, where most
food preparation occurs on lower floors and service is above.
In addition, the fact the building is vertically split into two wings, with the administration
section being substantially smaller, results in the absence of a central entry space. Instead,
one enters towards either end of the building with long corridors (up to 176 feet) stretching
in between.

LITERATURE CASE STUDY:

HABITAT CENTRE

(NEW DELHI)

19

Indian Habitat Centre is located on Lodhi Road, New Delhi, designed by Ar. Joseph Allen Stein, consists of six
restaurants, four galleries, one auditorium, amphitheatre and an atrium.
The ambience is created by the kind of landscaping, horticulture and fountains, that add life to the campus, and
make it a public place.
It is spread on an area of 9 acres, and is known for hosting plays, book readings, music concerts, dance
performances, art exhibitions, corporate luncheons and office workshops.
The super built up area of the campus is 97,000 sq. mt. and it can be accessed through three sides having Lodhi
Road on the northern side segregating vehicular and pedestrian movement.
There are five main building blocks which are interconnected by means of aerial walkways serving various
functional spaces like office spaces, exhibition spaces, conference facilities, cafeterias, etc.
DESIGN

OVERVIEW

The convention block is divided into two built structures, an auditorium and the
convention centre. This segregation helps in better handling of crowd and there is also a
separate entry to the convention centre that avoids other disturbances.
Segregation of pedestrian and vehicular entry with the use of level differences creates a
different approach to the complex.
The height of the buildings are 30m. Connected by aerial walkways, The entire facade is
with red bricks giving a majestic look.
Use of horizontal and vertical ribbon windows having slots in them for plantation purpose.
The building blocks being separated create interesting courtyards landscaped with stone
sculptures and is green throughout.
The courtyard being green, creates an image of a tropical rainforest with a constant airy
flow through the spaces.
Use of shading devices reflect back 70% of the summer heat. It is designed as a space frame
structure with blue reflectors that can be aligned providing shade during summer and
allows winter sun to enter.

The conceptual stage started with organizing the various


areas that were arrived at by various case studies and the
formulated program.

23

Firstly, all the buildings were grounded, linked by a


common plaza. Then, the idea of going to various heights
came into picture.
Also, simultaneously the idea of creating towers housing
various functions and linked by bridge came into picture,
as the site is located in an urban area and as area
constraints.
Then these towers were separated, and institution, hotel
and the residences were given their own zones on the
site, with a common plaza to link them at the ground,
while activity bridge in the form of a restaurant, became
an integral part of the design.
Meanwhile, the
lecture halls gave an
opportunity for the
kitchens to be below,
giving an appropriate
volume for proper
ventilation. Hence,
such section
developed.

DEVELOPMENT- 1

During the first stage of design, the


idea generated as to have a common
urban plaza that acts an interacting
space between the public and the
whole institute.
Also, there was an idea of providing
internal courtyards in all of the built
masses that lead to the overall design.

DEVELOPMENT- 2

The idea of courtyard was still


prominent in this stage but the
presence of building control line, lead
to minimize the spread of the
functions on ground, and lead to
verticality in design.
The activity bridge in the form of
restaurant was still persistent in
design.

STUDY MODELS

PRE-FINAL

Once the institute developed, the


same grids were extended and helped
in the formation of the hotel.
The hostels were arranged in the
same way.
But still, the ground coverage was
maximum, and the open plazas were
not as festive and as usable, as one
would imagine in such a place.

The site gave an area constraint that had one solution of going vertically up, in
order to keep the ground free. So, a grid was formed, based on the basic
requirement of the kitchens that was required in the program.
A linear movement pattern was made, alongside which all the learning kitchens
happened, thus helping in the services, as well as giving an opportunity to be
constantly in visual connection with the urban plaza.
The institute was developed keeping the least built on ground (the admin and
baking studio with a bakery outlet) giving an opportunity to the plaza to extend
even in the institute, with a plinth marking the difference between the two
entities.
Many layouts were tried giving semi-open spaces and forming terraces at upper
levels.

PROJECT FACTS
Texas A&M University
College station Texas June 2009
Education (new construction)
Challenge: Large auditorium with
stepped and sloped floors
Team: Michael Graves & Associates
(architect)
and Vaughn Construction
SKYFOLD SPECS
Installation: 2 Skyfold Classic walls
Finish: Fabric and wood veneer

DIVIDING USES
Highly regarded for its prowess in the sciences, Texas
A&Ms physics department had been growing quickly.
The new Mitchell physics complex links an elliptical,
45,000-square-foot institute for physics and astronomy,
by bridge, to the main physics building, the departments
workhorse, Sullivan quips. The result is undergraduates
rubbing elbows with senior researchers and faculty, which
can cause friction. The large auditorium needed maximum
flexibility for lectures, events and other programming.
According to John Collins of RSM Services, more
education facilities are now opting for stepped walls to
resolve varied schedules within large, multiple-use
learning spaces. It does seem to be a popular trend, and
the end-users love Skyfolds performance, he says.
Sophisticated engineering and tight tolerances allow the
Skyfold walls to properly mate and seal with each riser,
independently and automatically. The partition systems
weight is distributed along the entire span, eliminating
high concentration loads that increase structural steel
costs for traditional systems. For the shared lecture hall,
this meant flexibility and ease
of use, whether for physics club meetings or high-level
science symposia. We just hosted a large, international
conference for 250 people, says Melanie Becker, a Texas
A&M professor. It was very successful thanks to this
much, much nicer space.

CASE STUDY FOR PARTITION

INTEGRATED DESIGN CONCEPT


The project team used the retracted Skyfold
walls as part of the ceiling detail.
FAST AND SIMPLE OPERATION
Texas A&M faculty and students have keys
to the walls, which move 1 foot in 10 seconds.
CUSTOM FINISHES TO MATCH
Designers selected a neutral fabric with
a eucalyptus veneer base for the walls.

After electing to recommend Skyfold, the project


architects addressed key technical questions with Texas
A&Ms facilities team, headed by Bill Scott, construction
project manager, and Randy Wipke, area manager for six
Texas A&M University System campuses. Chief questions
asked included:
Clearance overhead? The folding ratio is 10:1.
Acoustical properties? Skyfold Classic has an STC
rating of 51, due to its thick, 10-1/4 construction of
steel plates separated by an anechoic air chamber.
Visual appearance? The team reviewed aesthetics
in both raised and lowered positions, selecting
custom fabric and eucalyptus finishes.
Closure of side seals? Acoustical seals engage the
walls automatically no receiving track needed.
Quietness and simplicity of operation? The
retracting walls make almost no sound at all, and
a few professors and even students have
