Architectural Conservation - Nagarjuna Bhawan, Jamnagar

Nagarjuna Bhawan, originally one of the first women's hospitals in Jamnagar, is currently a part of the ITRA as an institute building. On entering the campus, the colonial structure stands significantly as a symbolic identity of the institute, in spite of being partially abandoned after the 2001 earthquake. Its surroundings offer informal buffer spaces for the users of the campus and thus the proposal aims to extend the identified values through the abandoned spaces inside the building. By its adaptive reuse into a cafeteria with an interpretative theme, the building will sustain enhanced social relevance and create heritage awareness.
