Savvy Swaraaj Sports Club

Ahmedabad

Savvy Swaraaj Sports Club is planned as an integral part of the Savvy Swaraaj township on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. It has been conceived as a Sports Academy housing multiple indoor and outdoor sports facilities which are built to international standards. The program includes an Olympic swimming pool, Athletics track, Football ground, Tennis Courts. The indoor program includes multiple courts for badminton, squash, basketball, table tennis and ancillary facilities like gymnasium, physiotherapy rooms, residential rooms and a cafeteria.

The built form clearly responds to the program which is substantial for a limited urban site. Due to this, the building occupies a minimal footprint and the program is stacked vertically thereby giving maximum space to the outdoor facilities. Architecturally the built form is divided into two blocks connected by an atrium. The larger block houses all the sports functions which have specific dimensional requirements while the smaller block accommodates all the social functions. Connecting these two blocks is a dynamic central atrium with staircases and bridges.

The facade clearly expresses the duality of the program with the urban street on one side and the outdoor athletic track on the other. The intention was to create a building which responds to the nature of sporting activities, conveying a sense of movement and dynamism for the user. The architectural language is kept functional and minimalistic with a focus on impact elements and seamless materiality to drive the narrative.
