Market at Ghandhi Bazar

Design By: Akash
Studio co-ordinator : Ar. Smitha Mysore

This project has been designed for an existing market situated in the busy streets of Gandhi Bazar, Basavanagudi one of the oldest localities of  Bangalore.

Culturally the street is very traditional, old and lively. The building has been designed to accommodate the festivities, population, events and hawkers.

The incorporation of the cultural context of the old market area has made it easy to design a welcoming and lively market space.
Mezanine floor, open spaces have been created for maximum use of space in the congested narrow area.

The design features make the building extrovert and welcoming. A flexible space has been created at the back while is now used as a dump yard. This can be used for further expansion of the building.
