Papermakers, Murbad

The handmade paper making factory was also an institution for the school as well as art related students to view and understand the whole process.

An effort to bring awareness in the youth towards handmade paper.

These two functions of a factory shed as well as an institution for students and their lodging requirements were addressed in one building form.

We were looking at two different scales of institutional bringing concept to the locals as well as residential and merging them carefully to create a balanced and proportionate form.

The local material used there is brick and the local make bricks on their own. We experimented on this material to save on cost and also help the building to not look alien in the surroundings.
