Location: Kolhapur, Maharashtra, India
The context of the 1600 sq. m. site in a narrow lane of the city prompted us to recess the building and lend some of our space to the narrow urban lane. This facilitated parking, greenery and a good distance from the narrow road to comprehend the building.The functional context of a hospital treating patients in pain made us create spaces that were very lively, airy, well lit, with some greenery outside as well as inside with terrace extensions - - spaces that expressed a healthy ambiance. The other functional need of supervision and control induced us to create a triple height atrium space which enhanced the spatial quality also.
