Lazarus College of Craft & Arts
The building is to represent what the students are able to do at the end of their training. Though the LCOC is built in accordance with Indian architectural tradition the design also takes into account further contemporary development.
The equipment shall be practical and yet inviting. Professors, students and visitors should feel happy in equal measure. The building permit was granted on March 23, 2018.
Why does the building have just amenity?
Currently there is a lack of highly qualified teachers ("Master of Craft & Arts") for practical education in India. Therefore, it is a compulsory need that this LCOC has both manufacturing rooms and classrooms as well. For the first 10 to 20 years the LCOC will therefore have to produce for the market. This is not at least for cost considerations. The LCOC has to become self-supporting as soon as possible. If there are enough "Master of Craft & Arts" to train students in practical work knowledge, we can start systematically with exclusively theoretical training, inter-company courses (üK). The final exams should then be funded by the teaching firms or master associations. The building permit was granted on March 23, 2018.

The visitor will be greeted with an invitation to "Coffee German". This is a place for greeting, meeting and getting known. It offers both views towards the outside street and inside the building. Therefore this place of orders should be connected with production area.
The coat of arms of LCOC, what is depicted in the building, comes in the left of the front view and the word of LCOC with the signet of ownership.
In the ground floor, the visitor is, as already stated, greeted by the "Coffee German". A place of encounter and conversation.

Nearer to this hall, there are kitchen, laundry and storage rooms. Behind this hall there is the first atrium, which also serves as the recreation room. This is followed by four workshops, which are separated by a further atrium. In this atrium is a pool, which is fire water reserve for emergencies.

This is followed by 20 classrooms for 32 students each. In one of the classrooms there are computers for drawing lessons and other subjects for which a computer is required.
Even toilets can be found on this floor for the students and professors, both women and men.
On the second floor is the administrative area and living room for visiting professors.
On this floor there are larger open spaces, which are to be used as a roof garden. Here, the students can be taught ecological behavior and forward-looking construction with an ecological aspect.
Under the roof there are water tanks that can supply enough water and water pressure to power the entire building. The water is pumped into the tank from a bore well. On the roof itself, there is the possibility to attach a large photovoltaic system, so that with the natural sun light, a good amount of electricity could be saved.
