Commune India, Haridwar, Residential-Others

Haridwar, known for its rich cultural heritage has visitors from all over the country and all year long. In each of the project, we are ourselves a few question, what, who & how. What is the significance of the place? If any, who would be the end users?, and how do we utilize the significance of the place for the one who has to use it. So was derived the concept of a housing is Haridwar, for people from all four corners of India. In this project we didnt desire to make an absolutely modern day structure. We tried to make a contemporary yet traditional design. The entrance to the site was from over a water body which continued through the site in the form of stepped wells in between. We picked up elements of architecture from architectural heritage & used it in a contemporary style. The entrance to the site was from over a water body which continued & bound the entire site as one, also created stepped wells, wherever the water body crossed the central court of the 7 storey buildings. Chaupals, a distinct feature of heritage too were replicated. In the building elevation, we wanted it to look earthy so used brick tile cladding & the balconies were given jail, which too was a prominent feature of all the buildings, and were staggered too create a play.
