Project Summary

Water Collective in Nepal

Multifunctional public space

This project replaces an existing dilapidated guesthouse with a new multifunctional building. The new structure restores and enhances a historic Paati that was damaged in the 2015 earthquake.

When needed, the seismically-sound structure can also be used as emergency shelter and the building also provides safe water to the community; something the municipal system lacks.
