The first phase was focused on constructing a convention space confining 30 to 40 wards .

The roof was done as a shallow vault to create a reverberating space to  chant from a vantage point.

The ventilation was done in a way such that the easterly winds enter from a lower level into the room and the stacks up and vents out through the western direction.

The plot measures of 40’ in width and 60’ in depth located at the foot hills of Coimbatore west.

Planning

The planning was very simple on a rectilinear plot we placed a rectangular mass on western side with shorted side facing the road and longer side facing west.

Due to the exposed side facing west we had to use materials with higher “u” value and lesser “R” value .The ideal choice was to go with porotherm blocks measuring about 16” x 8” x 8” in its size.

It is larger in size but light in weight which resulted in a faster construction phases yet while finishing it  becomes slow due to  the brittleness.
