Location: Curtorim, Goa, India
Project Work Status: Completed Projects
Client: Franciscan Sisters Of The Immaculate Conception
The proposed monastery for the cloistered Franciscan sisters of Immaculate Conception (originally based in Spain) would be their first in Asia, and would be an inspiration for future monasteries globally. The building should be built in accordance with Goan / Indian culture: simple yet austere and monastic in nature. The Site should be well developed with good infrastructure like roads, lighting, gutters, rainwater harvesting system etc. The way of life of the congregation is sober hence the use of materials like laterite stone, wood; glass, iron etc. should reflect this in building.
