KLE ladies hostel located within a sprawling 95-acre campus is a 184-room residential facility with a capacity to house about 550 students. Taking advantage of the site and its features, the hostel is designed such that each room receives ample natural light and ventilation. It also consists of other supporting spaces such as a lobby, dining hall, cafe, kiosks, small shops and underground parking facilities. The facade gains its distinct identity through the provision of louvers and inclined elements that help break its linearity and at the same time reduce the direct impact of external climatic forces.
