Trans Ganga Master plan is spread over 1156 acres and is being developed as a mixed used development. Envisioned as an iconic city on the banks of Ganga, the master plan is a self sufficient sustainable city.
Ganga provides the most influential and dominant context for the master plan. The existing patterns of Ganga were studied and through digital simulation density patterns emulating the Ganga patterns were translated into the central green of the master plan. This central green area gives the master plan a distinct character and acts as breathing lungs for the city.
Sustainable city design has been imbibed in the planning at two levels. Firstly at the design level elements required to make a city sustainable have been grafted in the master plan. Secondary at the implementation stage green roof, earth cooling, solar panels, ground water recharge, waste management have been proposed.
At the heart of the master plan an auto expo is located, sitting amidst the central green. The auto expo is designed as an iconic building creating a prominent visual marker. It is located at a very important interface of the central green and the promenade. It's an amalgamation zone of various activities of the master plan cascading into each other thereby creating a functionally rich urban plaza. Auto Mart and Auto Expo are the two distinct functions nested in the building. These two activities are segregated using two continuous non intersecting ramps in the proposal.
Land use distribution consists of Commercial, industrial, Mixed use, residential and public amenities. In view of the Indian conditions, special amenities overlapped with certain design parameters have been provided in the master plan to avoid encroachment.
The functional diversity has been unified by a seamless skyline. This undulating skyline merges the various functional requirements of the master plan into a visually coherent system.
Iconic towers have been designed along the Ganga riverfront . These commercial/mixed used towers soaring up to a height of 100-140 meters, impart a sense of arrival to the master plan. The façade pattern for the towers will form a part of the detailed urban design guidelines. This façade pattern has been designed by solar analysis using computational software's, thereby generating a façade system that acts as a sustainable design feature in the master plan by reducing the heat loads.

There was used an OSB profiles as a dominant. Most of the woodwork furniture and accessories in the interior were made from OSB (Oriented Strand Board). Interior was designed by minimalstudio architects in cooperation with Sport Guru team. The result is a coherent, original and functional sports shop's space. Store was created for the customers interested in running and triathlon. The main challenge was to create a roomy and functional space for the storage boxes. Woodwork furniture were made entirely of OSB panels, using sliding fronts. The idea was to create a pure, simple interior refers to the sport in the natural spaces and urban fabric.
