Nektar therapeutics is located on an undulating site at Sameerpeth on the outskirts of Hyderabad city.

The design of the R + D Centre blends with, and uses this natural topography of the site, wherein all laboratories - including Analytical Research, Corporate Research along with a kilo lab and a Vivarium have been broken down into smaller blocks, interspersed with courtyards, ensuring that the topography of the site remains largely un- altered.

The courtyards besides providing a visual relief, help in creating a sense of campus and are tied through a 3mts wide avenue, unfolding a sequence of spaces along the way, beginning with the Administration block at the entrance, a library in the middle, before culminating into a 80 seat Seminar hall at the rear end of the site.

A quintessential use of bright colours, externally as well as internally help to identify Specific Laboratories within the larger facility.
