Roots Academy School - MayaPraxisRoots Academy School by MayaPraxis

Overview:

Roots is a school with a progressive view of education run by Pruthvi and Pranothi Banawasi. To nurture the kids, an open environment is designed. An existing building was remodeled for the classrooms and the rest of the site was carved into a variety of shared learning spaces. An art cluster of 3 ëhutsí around a small court-like space is where learning is most enjoyed. Larger gathering activities are held in the multipurpose hall next to the huts. The intimate architecture in compressed earth blocks and reused packaging wood is hugged by the landscape . Finishes are kept natural and earthy. The architecture lends itself as a canvas for the teachers and children to energize and and use in multiple ways.

CHIRANTAN RESIDENCE, at NANDED, MAHARASHTRA, by 4TH AXIS DESIGN STUDIO

A design that is contextual, instantly lends the built structure a unique character, on account of specific and unique site conditions it responds to. Such is the case with this home too which is located in Maharashtra’s Nanded District. Envisioned by, Architect Amit Kasliwal and Architect Sagar Mundada of 4th Axis Design Studio for a family of four. This home, named ‘Chirantan’, anchors itself on a sprawling 3780-square-feet plot. It was brought on board to develop a narrow plot, facing a lush green field. Having studied the context as well the site constraints, the firm came up with a design for the home that does complete justice to its surroundings while simultaneously adhering to the crisp client brief—“a house that appreciates the tranquility of the green field” .
