Community Canvas is an extra classroom designed by pk_iNCEPTiON in a rural school in Nashik, Maharashtra. Along with learning, the space is designed as a canvas for multiple uses- such as workshops, functions, and social gatherings.
The first interior design project envisioned at LADLAB is a 1600 Sq.ft, 3 bedroom apartment located in a prime residential area of Nashik, Maharashtra. The soul of this house is its location – a top-floor apartment placed right next to a beautiful Gulmohar grove. All the balconies and rooms open up to gorgeous views of this grove, which is certainly a rare find in an urban context.
The project is significant in the way it breaks away from the conventional way of life. It goes back to its roots, from the city to the village, thereby giving a growth impetus to the area, albeit in a small way. It acts as a creative landmark to the village, creating a sense of pride and inspiration urging them to stay back and work in their area rather than adding more burden to the city.
Half an acre of the plot had a considerable gradient across its length from W-E. The stone house is a humble 1200sq.ft pitched roof vacation home for the Somaiya family designed on the highest plateau of the site to capture the panoramic view of the varying nuances of nature. This is a single-story house approached by a meandering stair flight flanked by tropical plants on either side, framed within a stone portal. -Origin Architects

The client’s vision was to extend and refurbish his heritage winery into a boutique resort nestled in an established vineyard with the panoramic dam view. Accompanying this was a desire for a hospitality experience that celebrated their wine production. He wanted a building that would engage, evoke and establish a dialogue with the exiting surroundings.
Set against a lush green backdrop, the structure evolves from the ground and merges with the surrounds. It is a reaction to the existing contours so as to minimize the impact on ecology. The dynamic form twists and turns along the natural contours adding new surprises and boosting the creative minds of the students.
The symphony of building design evolves out of several concerns at a picturesque site of nature around is the campus of Sandip Foundation. At a higher counter level of the undulated ground profile, stands this magnificent but simple structure of the institute. Apart from the several design deliberations that have been discerningly addressed, the one aspect that stares you in the face is the belongingness of the built form with the landscape.
The rectangular plot was a constraint in itself as a small width remained after leaving the necessary margins. So the plan was spread with courtyards between the pavilions along a north south passage. The total cost predicted at design stage was 65 lakhs, the project was completed in 70 lakhs.
