Expansion of the campus — Gat No. 1270, Lavale, Off. Pune Bangalore Highway, Pune, Maharashtra 412115, India — 85.500 m² — 2026 — Flame University, Pune

Expansion of the Flame University

Close to the Indian city of Pune is the campus of the humanist-influenced private university Flame University, whose expansion was developed by blocher partners India. Since it was founded in 2003, the number of students has risen sharply, making spatial expansion necessary. In their masterplan, the architects take up the character of the existing building in terms of urban development, while the construction project provides for further faculties and additional functions. Taking ecological aspects into account, the planning office has distributed the newly added buildings such as flat blocks, auditorium and sports centre in an open structure on the site. Once completed, the campus will have a lasting impact on the decision-makers of the future with its ecological design and orientation.


In addition to an auditorium with 500 seats, the building houses various meeting rooms as well as the changing rooms and team rooms for the cricket teams.


Completion of the canteen with approx. 400 seats inside and outside is planned for February/March 2024. The design concept takes into account an old tree around which the canteen was developed. The square around the tree forms a central recreation area for students.

Flat blocks

The seven residential buildings with five to eight storeys have central courtyards and offer space for around 1,800 beds in double rooms.

Residential towers

In addition to living space for students, the six 14-storey towers offer communal areas such as cafés, snack bars, shops, a health centre, launderettes, common rooms and workspaces.

Vision Lab

The university reception building with Welcome Centre, administration, exhibition, student and alumni lounge is currently in the planning phase.

Faculty residential building

Construction of the apartment building for professors is scheduled to start in January 2024. In addition to the 1-4 room flats, other uses such as a fitness centre, library café and kindergarten are planned for the ground floor.
