YMCA International Campsite Nilshi, India – design by CCBA

29 Apr 2010

YMCA International Campsite

Site Location: Nilshi, Pune, India

Architects: CCBA

The YMCA International Camp site sits upon a promontory jutting into the Andhra Lake near Nilshi village, which itself is surrounded by Sahayadri mountains in western India. A small plateau at the top became the center of the design, which integrates cabins, tent sites, a manager’s bungalow and catering facilities into the landscape. Meandering paved walkway, small descending ramps, and stairs link all of the components of this organic plan.

This unique pattern results in structures being posited under earth mounds and within the hill slopes. One first perceives it as an open garden with only a walled dining court covered by tensile parasol. The descending ramps and stairs tempt one to explore what appears as entries to underground caves. Yet on further exploration these lead to foyers and only into generous rooms with large glass walls opening out to the vast lake fingers and forest.

Of particular interest is the manager’s bungalow, which is actually a crescent shaped, earth-covered bow, with glass walls facing the lake. Ventilators and skylights appear as sculptors on the earth mound roof. The composition thus emerges as a large organic garden integrated into a natural setting.
