Competition Brief:
The Brief of the competition is to design a Meditation and Yoga centre.The aim of the competition is to promote such retreat centers which have now become the need of the hour in today’s world.
Narrative:
A Wellness center is a very essential part for people in this urban society due to the integrated health solutions they provide to both mind and body. Location plays a very important part in the making of any wellness center. Here, our location is the city of Alappuzha in the state of Kerala, India. As this city is located near the waterfront, it creates the perfect setting along with the tropical climate. It is a place with less amount of population that adds up to the beauty of the site and the overall motive of this project. We start with the basic idea of proposing such spaces that respond to such a setting and are designed to allow the maximum amount of natural light and ventilation. All the buildings are centered with a courtyard and many green pockets that create breathing space and a kind of openness in the plot. There is an emphasis on earthy elements such as the use of stone, timber, natural fences. The horizontal expanse of the structure is well balanced with the verticality of the planes formed by the diverse vegetation. We are also proposing congregation spaces for users where they could get some hands-on experiences and help them connect more with nature. Along with this, things like comfort, accessibility, and aesthetics are equally paid attention to. The path gradients are very carefully calculated to minimize fatigue and provide subtle pause points. Gardens are proposed to encourage walking as a form of exercise and act as a barrier from urban noise and smoke.
