The 3R Pavilion Design | Patel-Vadodaria
We based our approach on the 3R principles: Reducing, Reusing and Recycling of materials.
The amount of steel and concrete was reduced by using filler slabs with earthen pots that were made by a local potter. Unburnt bricks comprising of surkhi waste and ceramic waste lime mortar were used for masonry. Waste stone chips were sourced for in-situ terrazzo flooring and reclaimed beer bottles were reused as fillers in walls together with pallet wood from the packaging industry.
Double glazing and over-deck insulation were provided to reduce heat gain. The structure was designed to accommodate all existing trees.
Wood, doors and windows were reclaimed (and restored) from the demolition of old houses.
