Semi-open areas coupled with areas having double heights ensure that the temperature inside the structure is maintained. Courtyards acting as buffer or congregational spaces promote social activities and also help in the natural ventilation.

The space is designed in such a way that separate entries are given for each function. Since the transport facility is a major function, it has been given a separate entry. Private vehicles have a range of options to reach the site and have been given separate entries. They have been allocated separate parking spaces, thus ensuring that there is no clash between private vehicles and the transport facility.

Utmost care has been taken to increase the bar of public transportation. The finishes used in the interiors are unique and play an important role in enhancing the quality of the area. A very modern design is created by making use of light weight sleek elements.

The commercial spaces, transport hub and retail shops are connected internally, thus increasing footfall for the retail shops which they use to their economic advantage. On the other hand, different functions such as multiplexes, cafes, canteens and retail shops are made available for the commuters while they wait.

transport-facilityThe TOD development in Mehsana has larger opportunities to diversify as the site has a much larger area. The Bus Terminal facility is designed in such a way that the traffic load is not concentrated in one area. Separate entries are provided for private vehicles and a large basement is provided to create ample parking space for private cars. The zoning is done in such a way that the Bus Terminal facility is placed in the centre with the commercial zones placed around it. This kind of planning helps the commercial areas by increasing footfall from the Bus Terminal facility. The interiors are made spacious and naturally ventilated along with many amenities and eateries to attract every kind of consumer to the different areas.
