Topsel Toyota is based in Kolkata had set up its showroom and workshop in Siliguri several years ago. This establishment required expansion for its used cars division as well as more area for its body and paint workshop.
Since most of the building was going to be non air conditioned, the design looked at natural means to allow the building to be ventilated in the workshop as well as showroom areas. This would call for a tremendous energy and cost saving. The design metaphor for the ventilation was the car radiator where the building would have fins designed along the prevailing winds direction.
The building is currently under construction.
