BUILT SPACE : 425 SQFT
SITE CONDITIONS : Timmaiyanadoddi hamlet is located in Anekal,Bangalore Urban district. It falls within Indlawadi Gram Panchayat. The nearest facilities, such as the hospital, middle and high schools, colleges, etc., are about 10 km away. The village has 24 plots of 30’ x 40’ parcels
of land for housing, over 1.5 acres of which were donated by the government nearly 50 years ago. The houses are located on either side of a central spine, which acts as a community space – all activities, like basket weaving, tying cattle, children playing, meetings, etc., take place in this street.
ABOUT : We planned to build a Community Centre, houses, toilets, and kitchen gardens in a holistic manner, along with community rainwater harvesting. We approached roads, drainage, tree plantation, etc., using a design-driven approach for cost effective,yet aesthetic, solutions. The community center was a tool used to demonstrate the usage of CSE blocks in the construction. The people had to believe in it before we could actually go on ground and build their houses with CSEB.
