Shrimad Rajchandra Adhyatmik Sadhana Kendra; Koba; 2010-15
Architectural Design with: Kartikeya Shodhan; Structural Design: Ami Engineers
This Ashram on a 7 acre site in the outskirts of Ahmedabad had grown haphazardly over the years in different architectural styles without a master plan in different architectural styles. Besides being home to their guru, there is a Jain temple, residential accommodation for devotees and students, and buildings for various ashram activities. We created a central open space by demolishing a large building and, so far, have built a wooden prayer pavilion (Shri Raj Mandir) within this central space, and an Office & Medical Centre at its edge facing the road, and Guru's residence (Sant Kutir) on the other side.
