Description

This Project is located in the Chennai Metropolitan Mofussil Bus Terminus- the centralized bus terminus for Chennai city, situated in a strategic location Koyambedu, through which passes the major city ring roads.

The Client CMDA (Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority) proposed this Project to increase the parking facilities at the CMBT, to meet the growing demand for visitors’ parking space. The parking spaces were planned in 3 levels, with 2 levels as basement floors. The Car parking was limited to the Ground level and the Basement floors were for 2-wheeler parking only.

Polycarbonate sheet roofing was designed to conceptually replicate the existing unique roof design of the Main Bus Terminus, based on the Dravidian temple Gopura. The use of Polycarbonate sheet also brings in diffused lighting into the second level basement, through the light wells, placed at strategic locations.
