THE DESIGN VILLAGE, NOIDA

In May 2017, The design village institute decided to move its exisitng campus to a larger permises to accommodate the growing number of students at the design school. Owning to the strigent environs, TDV looked no further than the neighbor across – an old abandoned Kattha (catechu) factory and saw immense design and renewal potential. Therefore, within days, the deal was struck and the plot across was ready to be revitalized before the students came back late in July. Two months was all the time that was given by fate, to the turn fate of this old manufacturing unit in a desolate state of urban decay. Studio Archohm and students from the village, helped convert this former facility into a dream village – retaining its inherent character while injecting new life. Narratives of the past were kept intact while giving the campus a new meaning. The process of the transforming this space - from a polluting factory to an inspiring institute with the excruciating constraints of time, budgets, context and its rather challenging spatiality, has been an exciting one.
