Project Completed: 2000

The dance academy was designed in particular for young aspiring Bharatnatyam dancers. It was important that the built form look like a performing arts centre in an urban fabric.

The concept was that of a gurukul and all the materials used are those that are locally available. The sloped roof entrance gives the academy a slightly traditional look, symbolic of culture. The choice of materials and colour give it a local flavour.
