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.
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.
A simple yet functional design using Grid-Module system is utilised for quick and fast construction. The space in between the two blocks
becomes the open interactive space for the
users to communicate, perform cultural and
Panchayat meetings. Use of various amenities such as citronella grass, bio toilets, solar panels, waste management treatment, rainwater harvesting system and sustainable materials such as brick, wood, bamboo, prefabricated concrete slabs.
