The Project Brief
Spanning 6 buildings in the Old City of Amberdad the project follows adaptive reuse principles; a perfect way to breathe new life into an old building, while conserving resources and its historic value.
This adaptive reuse project located in the Old City of Ahmedabad, entails the renovation of six 400 year old houses that have to be restored, connected and adapted to a new program.
Four of the houses are in a row on one side of the street and two adjacent to each other are on the opposite side. The houses that are next to each other will be connected in order to incorporate a varied program.
The program for the six houses is spread over a 1000 sm. footprint. It is layered in that it varies from floor to floor within the mostly three storied structures.
