IRUMBAI, TAMIL NADU
LOCATION: Irumbai, Tamil Nadu
PROJECT TYPE: Public
Irumbai multipurpose hall is a project completed in one of the villages next to Auroville. The site is located just off the Chennai-Pondicherry highway. The entrance is like that similar to a school’s, colorful and simple. The compound wall is made of brick and uses stone lintels.
The site consists of just a hall and a toilet. The hall is a brick construction finished with mud plastering in a few areas, exposed brick for the rest. A very clean and interesting combination that brings a simple concept to the fore, of the building rising from the ground and not separate from it.
The hall is supported by six round columns. Openings on both sides with ventilator openings on top. The flooring is a clean tile flooring very appreciated by the local crowd.
