On land where fruit-bearing plants are grown, arches of different sizes and walls of brick peep through dense vegetation, looking like ruins of an abandoned construction. Outside Kaggalipura, a village some 40 kilometers south of Bangalore, the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka, this new construction takes advantage of the uneven topography to integrate itself into the landscape. The Indian firm A Threshold – led by Avinash Ankalge and Harshith Navak – shapes and makes a balanced alternation of built and non-built spaces that complement each other. This flexible public facility is designed to accommodate different activities and events of the local community: classrooms, artisans’ workshops, lodgings. The materials used (bricks, stones, and concrete only for the slabs) and the workers (bricklayers and craftspeople) are all local.
