Sardar Patel Institute Hostel , Ahmedabad 1977

This hostel building is sensitively integrated with its surroundings. The requirements of the brief could not be simpler, and the plan could not be more logically, symmetrically and repetitively straightforward. However, it is the section of the buildings, which is most striking. The roof slopes, from a height, sharply and all the way to the ground at the back of the building where it shelters stacked verandahs amongst the overgrowth. The front facade is deeply recessed for sun protection.
