DesignTerrains (DT) : Congratulations Vaishaly on realizing your first sustainable project, your own residence Pushpangan. What inspirited you to independently take up this challenge of building sustainably?
Vaishaly (VA) : My love for creating a better world made me take this challenge. Since college, I have been incorporating sustainability aspects in each of my studio projects. I wanted to implement them in real life as well.
DT : That’s a great first step! Amongst the featured low impact techniques of this project, which one in your opinion was the most backbreaking to achieve?
VA : I would say, getting bamboo work done on-site was the most challenging one. As we do not get skilled labor to work on this material in the Noida region, I planned a bamboo workshop at the site itself. Around 10 people participated from varied backgrounds and we did the whole cutting, finishing, chemical treatment of bamboo on our own. Only the installation was taken care of by the site workers. It was a great experience for me and I will always be grateful to all those who participated during that time.Continue reading In a Discourse with Green Building Analyst Vaishaly | DT Trail
