Seamless Blend Of Old And New
Jindal Vidhyalaya, Maharashtra ABM Architects, Mumbai Design brief and aim The brief from the Client was to expand the existing school facilities, which formed a part of the larger industrial complex. How this was accomplished The existing school building being a box type structure, devoid of any character, and lacked functional features like chajjas, the new building was designed with controlled and functional forms, with a few interconnecting terraces, etc.
Architects modulated the existing school building by intro ducting limited projections, new windows and chajjas, while using a bright yellow to emphasize the corner form. The use of mild steel sections and pergolas, trellis, railings, the clever use of grey Kotah stone, mixed with yellow Jaisalmer stone and the step sections painted in bright yellow add a cheerful aspect to this simple structure. Happily ever after The seamless space is lively interconnected between the old and the new school building.
