VIBE Inn - The Youth Hostel

The site is located in the heart of Old city Ahmedabad which is about adapting Sardar Patel Bhavan. The project chosen to design is about Youth Hostel.   Typology of adaptive Reuse - Juxtaposition is taken forward, but at the same time following the same language of the building. Adding spaces and pause points like interactive and ground area creates a different environment from any particular hotel to a perspective of the youth hostel. The process has started with case studies, studying the hospitality industry, hotel case study, developing a program, conceptualization,  adaptive reuse typology, and further adding detailed areas.
