Project: SBI-PROJECT (B) STAFF QUARTERS PASIGHAT
Architectural typologies have developed in the north east as factors of tradition, climate and functionality. The materials used are locally available materials like bamboo, cane leaves, mud and lime.
Sloping roofs are a common architectural feature in all the architectural typologies because of high rainfall in the region. The stilted kutccha houses or ‘chang’ is a typology seen in areas of high precipitation and moisture content both in the air and the soil.
The stilted houses are typically designed to keep out the effects of heavy monsoon. This concept is replicated using the modern
Construction technology so as to create the parking spaces in stilt portions. A terrace garden is designed to keep the top floor cool And to create an interactive area.
