“Bricks to me are like faces. All of them are made of burnt mud, but they vary slightly in shape and colour. I think these small variations give tremendous character to a wall made of thousands of bricks, so I never dream of covering such a unique and characterful creation with plaster, which is mainly dull and characterless. I like the contrast of textures of brick, of stone, of concrete, of wood “ -Laurie Baker
SUREKHA RESIDENCE ELEVATION OPTION 1
ELEVATION OPTION 2
TOP VIEW • Brick being the main material for the front façade, concrete finish, rubble masonry with stone and wooden louvres go best with it. • The whole house is designed catering to multiple generations as a family moves through life. • Vertical gardens were designed inside the rooms and kitchen to add aesthetic value to the space.
SLICE UP OF FRONT ELEVATION • The residence design consists of ground plus four floors. That includes an office space in the ground floor and a home theatre in the top most floor

LAURIE BAKER CENTRE EXPOSURE PROGRAMMETRIVANDRUM, KERALA
Laurie Baker Centre (LBC) â€˘ The Laurie Baker Centre for Habitat Studies (LBC) was created by his friends, students and admirers to propagate his philosophy of the concept of sustainable development through research, extension, training, documentation, dissemination and networking. At its core, it is intended to include such areas as design and use of appropriate materials for buildings, creation of support facilities such as sanitation and drinking water, waste treatment, water harvesting and management, land development, promotion of non-conventional and eco-friendly sources of energy and creation of awareness of the need for sustainable development
LBC-NASA Exposure Programme : In 2012 the Laurie Baker Centre for Habitat Studies has launched an exposure programme for students of architecture in different colleges in the country. For this a memorandum of understanding was signed with the National Association of Students of Architecture (NASA) to conduct a three day exposure programme on cost effective design techniques and principles. Under this programme architecture students from different colleges were exposed to alternatives in architecture that are cost effective, affordable, environment friendly and aesthetically appealing building construction techniques along with topics in habitat studies. A framework for this programme was anchored in the concept of Green Economy. During 2012 ten such training programmes have been conducted with an enrolment of around 700 students. The programme was a combination of lecture sessions, handson training, field visits, films and interactive sessions. The enthusiastic participation of the students had made this programme a great success and the LBC proposes to continue the programme in the years to come.

Rat trap bond is a brick masonry method of wall construction, in which bricks are placed in vertical position instead of conventional horizontal position and thus creating a cavity (hollow space) within the wall. Architect Laurie Baker introduced it in Kerala in the 1970s and used it extensively for its lower construction cost, reduced material requirement and better thermal efficiency than conventional masonry wall, without compromising strength of the wall.
1. Lecture-cum-discussions on Laurie Baker's approach to architecture and buildings . 2. Practical sessions encouraging hands-on exercises on varied alternatives in architecture. 3. Site visits to completed and ongoing projects which are based on the cost effective building technologies and Baker's construction approaches. 1. Towards a Green Habitat : Approaches and Examples 2. Introduction to Laurie Baker, COSTFORD, LBC and Baker's philosophy 3. Energy considerations in architecture and building construction 4. Cost Effective Construction Technology -Part I and II 5. Lecture on "Climate Responsive Architecture"

URBAN PLANNING NEIGHBOURHOOD STUDY SADASHIVNAGAR, BANGALORE
Sadashivanagar was created out of the former royal gardens, and is home to one of the original four towers built in 1597 by Kempe Gowda I, the founder of the city. In the 1960s and early 1970s, the gardens of the Bangalore Palace (a summer home of the Wodeyar dynasty of Mysore) were converted into a residential neighbourhood, and this was when the first lots in Sadashivnagar were purchased. Until the 1990s, Sadashivnagar was known as "Palace Orchards," as it was built in the former royal grounds. It was renamed in honour of Karnad Sadashiva Rao, a freedom fighter and philanthropist. Even today, homes in the Raj Mahal Vilas Extension (built in the wing formerly known as Upper Palace Orchards) are situated right opposite what is left of the official palace grounds. Many highly placed government officials, exgovernors, film stars and millionaire businessmen have bought homes in the neighbourhood.
LANDMARKS IN SADASHIVNAGAR NEIGHBOURHOOD • GANESH TEMPLE STUDY: SADASHIVNAGAR • SHIVA TEMPLE
The different characteristics of residential structures are often sufficient to separate neighbourhood. Residential building may be classified into four categories for purposes of neighbourhood groups. Single structure, two to four family structure, apartment houses and rooming houses. This simple breakdown doesn't include the myriad. Other housing types i.e., row housing, semi detached flats, each of which may be an important segment of the housing stock in particular localities and may require special treatment.

• Palace grounds used to be a place where many activities and concerts used to take place. Many exhibitions on household products, handicraft bazars etc., Were promoted here. Now due to other expos constructed in the outskirts of the city, these grounds have become barren with very little activity. • Sankey tank attracts a lot of early morning and evening walkers but parking for these crowds is insufficient. Wide roads are provided but we can see cars parked on either sides of the road affecting vehicular movement. • The type of people living in this area belong to middle income groups(MIG) and high income groups(HIG) due to which each households owns a minimum of one car. There is no provision for parking of these vehicles due to which, the owners park on the roads, hence affecting vehicular movement. • Insufficient parking for visitors- this includes the people coming to Sadashivnagar club, Cauvery theatre, temples during auspicious days, weddings in palace grounds, school functions, or any other residential functions cause inconvenience to the residents. • A very efficient storm water drains and drainage system were laid but they have not been maintained over a period of time causing many rodents to b reed in the blocked drains. However, in recent times, the drains have been cleaned and the system is getting back to its original state. There were a few streets with open drains but that has been solved and closed drains have been installed everywhere.
The residents of Sadashivnagar took the initiative to clear up the garbage dumped on the roads and pathways

The first floor of the front side of the building is at the same level as the ground floor of the rear side of the building, connected by a bridge that overlooks the courtyards. Each classroom/studio consists of a semi open space that provides the students a better place to work, also making sure it receives enough ventilation and natural light.
INTERIOR DESIGN OF A FOOD COURT: SEMESTER 6 S1
RECLAIMED BRICKS AS A WALLING MATERIAL
PLAN OF THE FOOD COURT THE AIM WAS PUT EVERYTHING TOGETHER WITH NEW PRODUCTS IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE THAT ‘RUSTIC BARN HOUSE’. FOLLOWING THE CONCEPT OF SUSTAINABLITY, THE FOOD COURT IS DESIGNED USING RECYCLED MATERIALS SUCH AS RECLAIMED WOOD, RECLAIMED BRICKS AND FURNITURE.
RECLAIMED WOOD AS A FLOORING MATERIAL
3-D SECTIONS THROUGH THE FOOD COURT COURT APART FROM THE SELF-SERVICE OUTLETS, THE FOOD COURT CONTAINS A LIVE KITCHEN FOR A CUSTOMISED MENU. AN ELEVATED COMMON EATING AREA ADORNS A GLASS FACADE WITH A BLANKET OF WATER RUNNING PARALLEL TO PROVIDE A PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE AS THE VISITORS ENJOY THEIR FOOD.
VERTICAL GARDENS (ALSO KNOWN AS LIVING WALLS) ARE DESIGNED NEAR THE BAR COUNTER TO PROVIDE THE RESTAURANT WITH FRESH LOCAL HERBS AND EDIBLE FLOWERS. VERTICAL GARDENS OFFER ECONOMIC, ENVIRONMENTAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL BENEFITS: BUILDING PROFILE AND BEAUTIFICATION, AIR QUALITY, BIODIVERSITY AND HABITAT AND MOSTLY ACOUSTIC BUFFERING.
