INSITE is India's first B2B design magazine with a primary focus on the profession of interior designing and architecture and it also focuses on the eternal factor of design. INSITE is the official magazine of the Institute of Indian Interior Designers (IIID).
Institutional Spaces are essentially meant to inspire and aspire people to contribute towards their societal responsibility, be it school, training centre, library or a community centre. That’s the reason, designing these spaces involves multiple considerations from the stakeholder’s perspective. From universities and institutes to galleries and centres, a variety of projects fall under this category of design. Keeping in mind the innumerable users of an institutional space, architects and designers need to consider the requirements of all users to make the space functional, aesthetic and resource-friendly and of course, user-friendly! This issue covers a lead story by Ar. Christopher Benninger followed by coverage of projects like a pre-school design by Renesa Architecture Design Interiors Studio; The Outdoor Classroom by Studio Infinity; an Architectural Training Centre designed by Studio Advaita; restoration of an old structure by Dhananjay Shinde Design Studio; Stacked Student Housing by Third Space Architecture and the new premises of an industry-centric institute – The Design Village by Studio Archohm. We are sure, these wide range of projects will give an insight into the various thoughts that go into designing institutional premises.
