"Built in beautiful exposed brickwork, the Symbiosis Centre for Advanced Learning is sited amidst breathtaking valley views"

Surrounded by lush valleys on three sides and a hillock on one, the Symbiosis Centre for Advanced Learning offers executive training programs, summer school and workshops in a picturesque setting. Equipped with state of the art facilities the institute allows students to interact, build connections and learn in a collaborative way.

The institute comprises of two main buildings - the Academic block & the Residential block. A large recreational ground separates both these buildings.

The Academic block fits snugly around a natural mound in the north of the site. A beautiful, curved, jaali wall in exposed brick guides the visitor to the entrance of the building. Classrooms are oriented to allow ample north light into the interiors whilst corridors on the south are shaded with screens. A multi-cuisine restaurant with an outdoor deck opens onto beautiful views of the Oxford golf club in the valley below.

The central zone of interaction is defined by a grand staircase in the Academic block that unfolds into levels that merge with the contours on site. Planned as the centre of student activity, these interactive platforms offer informal seating for study and conversation.

The Residential Block is sited in the south to optimize on spectacular views of the forested hills, valleys, lakes, golf course & the farms around. The residential block accommodates nearly 100 Rooms in two wings, with executive rooms in one wing & twin-sharing rooms in the other wing. These are luxurious rooms, each with their own private balcony opening to the mesmerizing views. The two wings reduce along the length of the building creating stepped terraces.
