EAT..RELAX..SOCIALISE...that was the motto of The Hut Café. The Hut Cafe is located in Thandalam on the NH4 – One of the Prime Education Hubs in the City with many Colleges and Schools around. The Idea was to provide a great location for the Target Clients:

1) Student community.
2) Local residents. &
3) High-way users to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.

The space should not only serve as a cafeteria but also as a melting pot for the users to hang-out, discuss and learn / socialise in a creative, natural environment. All the trees were conserved on site and made a part of the Built-environment. The Building is entirely sustainable and was a low-cost project. Maximum materials used were re-cycled and the construction costs were very low. The Design has created a place of happiness and learning amongst several constraints, which were turned into opportunities to add Value to the Lives of several people.
