imago chosen for completion Tamil Heritage Centre

After the project came to a standstill, due to internal problems, a call was made to the community for architects to take on the completion of the project, and imago was selected as the new architect.

The program for this building covers a broad spectrum of functions – administrative offices, event spaces, workshops, classes, exhibitions, seminars, performances, secure exhibits, retail of crafts/artefacts and books, and display of relevant heritage items as a museum space.

imago will work with the existing building and aim for completion of the unfinished building in the most economic and time constrained manner.

Update from TLC – February 2015

Here are some latest pictures from the site… The juicy brown of the wood contrasting intensely with the silver of the steel creates a beautifully warm environment… Better than we imagined!
