The theme for the competition is Contextual Design: Creating Space, Re-interpreting Tradition
Project Inside out aims at offering a multifold staying experience with nature at its core.
INSIDE OUT- an idea through which the connection between user, nature and its resources is followed.
Responding to the site was key for contextual design which shaped the project.
The response has been explored through various frames like climate, environmental management strategies, present and past traditional values from around and much more.
The design was planned around the existing natural resources and also aimed at keeping them intact. Through this design project the user gains an understanding of the past practices of self sufficiency, local traditional values and simple ways of living in a modern context.
The typical architectural style of building of the nearby villages gave rise to creation of various open, semi open and private spaces, giving a holistic spatial experience.
Growing the food you eat, various recycling strategies, community living, is encouraged as part of developing a culture on site and helping visitors grow a connection with the built and unbuilt environment
Creating comfortable and habitable spaces via large overhangs with small outdoor courtyard spaces getting formed, share a dual purpose of blocking the south sun and cater to the concept of inside out to the very core of the project.
