Microsoft’s new office looks a lot like the Taj Mahal

Software giant Microsoft has opened a new facility in Noida, near New Delhi, that is quite different from typical tech campuses. The new Microsoft India Development Center at Noida takes inspiration from the magnificent Taj Mahal and is spread across the top three floors of a six-story building in Noida. The first IDC campus opened in Hyderabad in 1998, followed by another in Bengaluru.

Blending the design of the Taj Mahal into a sprawling office requires a lot of thinking, after all, the monument was never supposed to have workstations. The new building is made ivory white and has jaali work– a Mughal architectural style of perforated stone or latticed screen along with typical Mughal-era arches, and domed ceilings.

“It’s really about two aspects. One is to build a world-class product development organization in India. It’s a dream I had when I came back to India from Redmond in 2005 when there was nothing,” said Rajiv Kumar, managing director, Microsoft IDC, and a Microsoft veteran of nearly 29 years in an official blog post.

“My vision to create the Noida center was to attract the best talent that graduates from some of the world-class engineering and management institutions in the country’s north,” added Kumar.

To help the local economy, all the marble and fabrics were sourced from nearby regions.“We hired local artisans to do the inlays and paintings. It’s our way of helping the local talent so they can also add Microsoft in their profile,” said Jagvinder “Pinny” Mann, who managed the project as the lead for Real Estate and Facility (RE&F) at Microsoft India.
