COMPETITION

REDEVELOPMENT OF BDD CHAWLS

Founder of PLURAL in collaboration with Sandeep Shikre Architects and KRVIA Design Cell participated in competition floated by MHADA for redevelopment of 100 year old BDD Chawls at 3 locations of Worli, Naigao and N.M. Joshi. The challenge was the resultant density by means of Cluster development that needed to be housed. Innovations in housing typology was the key to provide the three connects that residents originally enjoyed – connect to ground, community and city through low rise, high density porous urban fabric.
