Located in Lonavala, Maharashtra this is the residential campus of the Cathedral school of Mumbai. this was a very climate specific design that worked very well not only with the rains, but also with the surrounding landscape.
the roofs are sloped and the over hang keeps he water out of the buildings.
the exterior of the building is finished in an aggregate to stop the spread of lichen and moss, which develops very fast in these regions. the coulrs were chosen specifically to match the brown and green landscape of lonavala's hills. the low and sweeping form pays respect to it's surroundings.
This project also encompasses a comprehensive hostel facility.
