Ahmedabad, Gujarat | 2021
We designed an urban designer’s condo in Doshi’s iconic Bimanagar Housing, Ahmedabad. The spaces within the studio are interpreted as an act of walking through the city, and the various experiences that it entails. People, Wall, Threshold, Object, Alcove, Pause- form the elements of an urban space. The act of gathering, multi purpose, undefined spaces which can adapt to various functions, people and time. Nooks are formed as a result of these spaces and they provide a sense of intimacy.
The intervention appears as a palimpsest of the older house rather than a completely altered environment, thereby keeping its layers open for interpretation and inspection.
