Scope and Content

File documents an executed project for a live-work complex in Mumbai, India, that reuses the structure of an existing fire-damaged warehouse. The name of the project, Saat Rasta, translates literally to Seven Roads, a reference to a nearby roundabout. The site is immediately adjacent to the Central railroad as well as an informal housing settlement, qualities which made the location undesirable for developers. To adhere to zoning regulations, the design recoups the warehouse's original basalt stone perimeter wall. Brick infill delineates the units, while new wood-frame and cement-panel walls shape interior spaces. Each unit contains one or two courtyards, the roofs of which tilt inward to capture rain and avoid draining water on the surrounding housing. The courtyards also allow for the growth of local vegetation, especially Goolar figs, which had overgrown on the site before its redevelopment.

File contains photographs, drawings, and a model.
