This plant for manufacture of special purpose motors is at Ahmednagar , a hot ,dry and dusty area.The process which involves precision work demanded a building that provided clean and cool working conditions without air conditioning and mechanical means of keeping the areas dust free.

A modular plan was evolved in which workspaces were attached to a central spine containing stores and circulation areas. The spine also contain offices which are central to the production areas . The plan is open ended and the spine and modules can grow.

To keep out the heat and dust, roofs of production units have a lawn over them for reducing heat and a thick curtain of creepers hangs from a trough at the roof .The curtain of creepers also help filter the light coming into the shop, thereby softening the harsh summer light.
