Conservation-led Design for Kalidas Jethabhai House commences

1 Jul 2023

CHC is pleased to announce a new milestone for the CEPT Conservation Site Schools program: Kalidas Jethabhai House, Dharmaj becomes the first Site School to reach the phase of conservation and regeneration. 

Initial stages of work included the structural assessment of wooden members in the front wing with Mehul Shah and his team, and discussions on program development and conceptual design directions for architectural intervention with BandukSmith studio. 

As part of this engagement, CHC has taken up primary responsibility for conserving the front wing, organising training and capacity-building for local contractors and workers, facilitating community consultation, and creating records for knowledge dissemination, along with providing inputs for the new design and construction at the site.
