Excerpt: The Girls’ home is part of a residential school campus for girls from distressed backgrounds. The building is designed in a L-shaped plan with the girls’ rooms in one wing and the caretaker’s rooms in the other wing connected by the pivot of the common living-dining-kitchen space. The highlight of this project is the veranda connecting the girls’ rooms which becomes the semi-open social space and connects back into the community courtyard. It also helps to suitably ventilate the rooms.
