Rachana School Library
Ahmedabad

PROJECT PROFILE
Project Details
Client: Saraboni Educational
Foundation, Ahmedabad
Built up Area: 4 1 7 sq m

The Rachana School as part of their expansion plans decided to create some additional facilities within their premises. HCPDPM was commissioned to design a new building adjacent to the play area. The building houses an open gathering space on the lower level to create a visual extension of openness and a library on the upper floor. The need for indirect lighting into the library influenced the design and the entire north wall is glazed, east west facades have no openings and the southern side has deeply recessed slit openings. The primary building material is exposed brick and concrete. The dominant element is the open staircase and the skylights. M/s. HCPDPM has appointed M/s. Jhaveri Associates as Services Consultants.
