Aatam Hostel & House

Situated in Kota, Rajasthan, Aatam embraces the regional architectural style of ‘haveli’ to cater to student needs. The residential program includes student hostels and a family residence. In Kota, a coaching hub for IIT aspirants, student housing lacks vital elements like natural light and ventilation. Aatam reimagines student living by integrating traditional haveli features such as courtyards and lookout balconies. Unlike neighboring row houses, it opens up to the street, fostering community interaction. The design promotes airflow through terraces and courtyards, creating a comfortable environment. A bridge connects residential units, and stepped terraces offer shaded social spaces for students. Aatam marks a departure from conventional student accommodations, offering a more supportive living environment in Kota.
