(HP Campus) 

Chitkara University 

The journey of a young entrepreneur at this campus in Himachal Pradesh is imagined like an expedition through an uncharted forest. The apprehension of the space is choosing individuality, stepping out of comfort zone, being a non-conformist. This has been achieved by playing with primary forms, clean lines and different materials that are raw and austere, yet maintaining the urbane ambiance.


Different spaces, conceptualized for a variety of startup teams’ activities, have distinct characteristics. Walking in through the ‘startup pitch’- holding the mobile workstations, embracing the charm of rustic mud plastered walls and warmth with upholstered modern furniture- leads to adjacent ‘mentorship zone’; bamboo stems and a dense ceiling of Earthenware kullad mark the entry into the ‘forest’. The chamber below the kullads has lockers and a pantry. The skylit ‘social zone’ is a prime focus for all the activities and events. Facing the social zone are exposed brick arches guarding ‘startup caves’ – safe space for brainstorming and holding solitary meetings.
