Memories of childhood is a priceless thing! A leading diamontaire approached us to recreate a Ba-ni-Oshari which can be translated as the 'Verandah of the Mother's House'. In his childhood days, coming from a small village in Saurashtra, he had distinct memories of spending time on the verandah which also was a popular spot for hosting the 'diara' events back then. So the project was about reliving this experience of conducting events and family get-togethers like those days. As a process, the project is constructed out of assembling of architectural elements accumulated out of torn down houses in various parts of Gujarat. The way this C shaped building comes to gether to hold the court and facilitate the anticipated events, gives unparallel joy to the user and the designer alike!
