Shree Swaminaryan Mandir
Temple & Community Building
Whilst at LTS Architects, Michael worked closely with an Associate to complete the technical design and visited the site on a weekly basis to oversee construction and liaise with the client body.
The project combines traditional Hindu architecture with contemporary design and construction techniques, and the buildings are connected by a new landscaped courtyard and continuous screen wall which unifies the complex.
The new buildings are designed with sustainability in mind, achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating through the use of a high performance envelope, natural ventilation and sustainable technologies.
