The Handloom School
Architecture for weaving school in Maheshwar
PROJECT AREA: 34,000 sq.ft | Ongoing
The Handloom School is an innovative initiative launched by WomenWeave to encourage talented artisans to continue to practice the threatened craft of weaving. THS nurtures the weavers through a creative, practical and multi-disciplinary learning experience that enables them to participate in the global marketplace, both ethically and equitably.
To arrive at the flow of spaces for smooth functioning of the school; our design was guided by the discipline of process of weaving, from the spinning of thread to the final finished product. The architectural language was inspired by the local traditions of building, articulating a coherent framework about the facility, which locates itself within the parameters of its functional and socio-cultural context.
