Community centre and home for marginalized children
This shelter in one of Thane’s slums was established for abandoned children of sex workers to provide them with a safe residential space. Today 30 girls reside here ranging in ages from 3-16.The centre also functions as a community gathering space hosting events for senior citizens, women and infants.
The current centre is poorly planned with insufficient areas to accommodate its varied functions. Our task was to completely redesign the existing centre to respond to the needs of its diverse users, climatic challenges and tight site constraints.
