Design & Concept
In this Design we try to incorporate the cultural significance of the ”Tharu people”, who live in the surrounding region. After studying their buildings and way of living, this was achieved by using a traditional craftsmanship, available sustainable materials from the surrounding area and the rich textural language to create links with the existing community, so the building belongs to the place. Our aim is to create buildings that are more connected with the village and not to stand out from the “Tharu” community. We scaled down the buildings visually by using linear structures and lighter materials. Also the layout emulates that of a traditional family compound, as a cluster that focuses around a central courtyard. Through the architecture we created a safari ambiance and connection to the wilderness giving the guest the experience of living outdoors and being closer to nature. Finally our concept is to give the “Tharu village” experience through the architecture and merge the buildings with the grass landscape.
