This project was also commssioned by Arul Ashram. They frequently receive volunteers from different countries, who come in large groups, to help with the patients and children. They needed a simple facility to accomodate these groups for periods ranging from 1 to 3 months.
10 units in 2 clusters were conceived which would be able to house from 3 to 5 individuals each, with shared bathroom, toilet and laundry facilities, altogether for 30 people.
The Units have been playfully composed , with open verandahs enclosing each unit, creating vibrant spaces for young volunteers to hang out in their leisure time. This allows a close contact with the outer environment - open coconut fields. The verandahs also shade the enclosure of the units and protect it from windy rains.
