The Aurobindo Ashram institute for human consciousness, the Gnostic centre is designed to preserve the sanctity of the structure through simple yet elegant planning and material application. It incorporates structures like the meditation hall, Samadhi, Hostel and seminar hall.

The meditation hall is fundamentally a circular hall flanked by 3 ancillary rooms serving as a personal meditation room, an office and a discussion room.

The roof is an exquisite conical dome of slate, salwood and Styrofoam insulation pushed in place. The nail jointed timber truss spans 12 meters with no application of Gusset plates and a minimal thickness of 2cm.

The gold plated central drum and usage of shades in crystal and white for the interiors imparts the structure with a serene sense of space. The Samadhi, housing the relics of Shri Aurobindo is a formation in earth and reserves an essence of emerging from its natural landscape. The mud roof depicted as a 12 part petal – symbol of the mother, is covered in a layer of cement plaster to prevent development of cracks and steel ribs impart the necessary structural strength.

A few structures such as the caretakers' cottage, health centre, hostel reception hut with corbelled sandstone are even designed as porta cabins.
