Architectural Conservation:Ahmedabad General Post Office

The site given was Ahmedabad General Post Office. Through the initial stage of documentation, condition mapping & assessment, significance & value assessment, it was understood that the structure was in good condition but was slowly losing its purpose. Moving forward, a detailed study on the spatial use of the structure on the basis of historic interpretation and current usage led to developing a holistic design proposal i.e reorganisation and introduction of a philatelic bureau along with basic structural interventions for its maintenance. This studio helped in working towards integrated solutions for conserving historic structures.
