Community Centre at Kendra Dangal Village at Bolpur, West Bengal

Category: Community Facility

The site is located at Kendra Dangal village, 8.1 kilometers from Shantiniketan, Bolpur, West Bengal. Kendra Dangal with an acreage of 9.5 is a village under Sattore Panchayat with a total population of 24,000 approximately. Surrounded by concomitant villages and rived by Suri – Bolpur Road, Kendra Dangal becomes the epicenter of its neighbors namely Bishnubati, Bergram and Ballabpore. Only Kendra Dangal enjoys the main road access towards Shantiniketan unlike others.

The Challenge

Advancement of the village is rapid, despite being wrapped in remoteness, communication gap , lack of hygiene and health care. However, introduction of newly developed universities and tower communication favors the growth of socio economic status of the village. Increase in population, remoteness of the site, limited supply of electricity - issues have stood up to become the referral points for addressing and shaping the design.


The Solution
