Andheri Station is the already considered the HUB for transportation due to the several linkages it provides and its strategic position. Adding this metro station will only add to the amount of footfall. Since the metro is an elevated system it is imperative to have designs that merge into the city fabric. These massive structures need to be treated as positive interventions. The station design is derived from a Typical Indian Jali pattern wherein the jali’s can provide light and ventilation and also add to the artistic element of the overpowering structure. To enhance the design further we have added a pattern which changes the opening sizes of these apertures based on the placement of the same. For example, the platform level has ample openings to help ventilate the non-air-conditioned space where as the roof will have lesser openings which will enable light but also prohibit excess heat in our tropical climate.
