Typology- Rehabilitation Housing
Location- Bhuj & Bachau District
Area- 6,40,000 sft
Rather than prefabricated solutions, participatory design workshops with villages led design. Ambitious and variant eight typologies were cast and modulated to suit specific needs. Almost 5000 homes were built, schools and community centres were inserted and finally infrastructure for sewage was created. Blocks were created locally and the modularized structural system was constructed to accommodate all typologies.
More importantly, livelihood was prioritized as the villagers themselves regenerated their habitats. Pride and dignity restored today these villages are towns.
