Magic Bus Campus Masterplan

A 25-acre campus, situated near Mumbai in the Sahyadri Hills, seeks to educate and mentor children through outdoor “experiential” learning.

The valleys of the Sahyadri Hills supply a unique variety of diverse terrains to be experienced by the children; rivers, woods, nature trails, camping grounds, and expansive green lawns for soccer. All of which is intended to promote the NGO’s concept of “learning by doing”.

The first Phase of this project comprising of children’s dormitories, a dining pavilion, volunteers accommodation and resources centre was designed by Rahul Mehrotra Associates. Architecture BRIO was commissioned to design the campus masterplan for the second Phase of the Centre comprises of our designs for staff accommodation, separate facilitation centers for children and corporates, a children’s village and some additions to kitchen and administrative facilities.
