  5. 5. Project: the regeneration of one of the many colonial houses in Bangalore, changing its function to one thatwould better suit the community around it. This house is situated on a bustling street intersection nearcommercial street, making it a prime location for a public building-an art gallery which also houses workshopspaces. Existing house
  6. 6. Ground floor plan First floor plan Plan showing existing jack archesSection AA Front elevation Section BB We were required to first measure draw the existing structure before the design process began . This helped understand the building in its entirety.
  7. 7. Concept imagesThe north elevation of the house is designed with a very contemporary approach whereas the house when viewed from the front still retains most of itsexisting character. Retaining the three staggering walls that are visible from the front enhances this to a large extent. All additions in design are keptsubtle so as not to disturb the aesthetics and sculpture of the house .The jack arches are still kept intact in the front half of the house. A platform at aheight of 1.0m from the ground extends out from the house onto the road announcing the site. This serves as a boundary and buffer between the outsideand the inside, making the site interactive with the public. The still water body introduced serves as a foreground and introduces a certain sense of calm .The entrance to the gallery is now from the north . Four shops open out onto the road. The plan has been stretched to make it more cruciform toaccommodate a café at one end and a display at the other. Workshop spaces are introduced on the first floor that rises up to a height of 1 ½ times theheight of the house from the ground, which are treated with glass and steel frames as compared to the rustic feel of the house.

  19. 19. Documentation of world heritage site- PattadakalThis project carried out from November 1st 2010 to March 31st 2011,was a joint collaboration between CCS-CEPT University andArchaeological Survey of India. I joined the team to document the Pattadakal temples, wherein the team was responsible to measuredraw each temple and prepare site drawings as dummies which were later prepared on ACAD format for final presentation. This workis of importance as a record for the ASI archives.Through this process, one lesson that was constantly reiterated was that in design, the experience is what is supreme. Themethodology applied helped relate part to whole and whole to part, to get an overall perspective of the architecture.Whether its stone resting on stone , with watertight , mortar less joints designed with such precision, or the power that symmetry andrepetition held on the architecture, these temples still tell the story completely.

  22. 22. This was a project a classmate and I took up in college, during ourannual exhibition,2008.We were to design and execute the installationof an exhibition structure on the terrace of our department . Thechallenge was limited space and a tight budget. Materials we chosewere bamboo, concrete blocks,sand,cloth,and tarpaulin. Keeping inmind the flow of people, the space was designed as a series of L shapedunits, thus giving each student two display surfaces and also keeping thedisplay off the main circulation.
