In the contemporary context it is essential to design spaces which last over a period of time. Flexibility of programs, giving rise to multiple activities are the key to sustainable design. This was the start point for the selection of the program.

ECONOMICS

SUSTAIN

Such a strategy will ensure its survival and sustainability over a period of time. A primary requirement for this, is a flexible program or in other words a variable use of space which will lead to a constancy of use, over a period of time. This is especially true in the case of public buildings. Public spaces designed for time bound activities tend to fall in disuse after the completion of events. The most commonly examples are those of stadiums and public parks with specific timings. Consequently, anti social elements and activities abound such dead areas. Another point in the case of public buildings is the issue of maintenance. A public space which enjoys high occupancy will automatically generate its owns funds and find novel techniques to overcome inactivity.

Time and space are the two variables around which architecture is built. Buildings evolve over a period of time because the perception of spaces changes. A building needs to constantly respond with the its surrounding contexts and find a way to inhabit itself all round the year.

The site lies at the southern tip of National Highway 8, at Bandra Recalamation. It is an easily accessible site, with connectivity to Worli via the newly constructed sea link, to Mahim via the Mahim Causeway, to Bandra via S.V. Road and Bandra Linking Road, and to East and North Mumbai via the Western Express Highway. The project requirements call for a recreational centre, which will allow people from all the above areas access to facilities and spaces which will help them nurture their talents on a leisurely or professional level. Flexibility of spaces and programme will ensure maximum and optimum usage of the facility. The architecture should promote a sense of confluence and congregation, which will promote the programme.

Mumbai is a region of great ethnic diversity; this results in a multitude of different communities, each with their own unique cultural traits coming together. The pursuit of excellence in passions creates professionals. Unfortunately, the spaces available for these communities to pursue and showcase their hobbies and passions, which arise out of their cultures, are extremely limited. On the off chance that some facilities or spaces do exist, they are seldom well maintained, and are unused or misused for the rest of the time. Furthermore, due to various reasons like lack of space, high land values, etc, the facilities that are provided are very expensive for the vast majority who have passion, but cannot afford such spaces.

BANDRA FREEMIUM CENTER

* transparency * layering * zoning *

The site is at the confluence of varying infrastructural developments and acts as a binder between the city and the suburbs. The idea of connectivity and visibility from afar and in between the programmes was examined. Zoning was done in such way where the central staircase acted as an adhesive to the spaces around and as a viewing gallery to the surrounding. Categorizing the programme from public to private led to the transition of transparent to opaque experiences within the spaces of the recreation centre.
