Connought place design is based on concept of european renaissance. Much of Connaught Place features Georgian architecture, painted white and has a manicured park in the centre

The space is conceived of as 2 concentric circles, creating the Inner Circle, the Middle Circle & the Outer Circle and seven radial roads. The inner circle of CP is bounded by a two storeyed building ring all around, with a colonnaded passage at the ground level. The double height passage with the massive columns on one side creates a strong axis of movement, yet at the same time creating a comfortable space due to its semi-open nature. A major disorienting factor in this space is that all around the inner ring, the architecture of the double storeyed buildings with their colonnaded passages is so monotonous that one cannot orient oneself in the space.

Plaza de armas is based on spanish architecture.cathedral with arches is the most attractive feature of place

Lavish architecture and open spaces add to the aesthetics of the space

NOTE:-C.P. is based upon radial concept,has colonnaded walkways and white faade.
