In a month from now, architects and builders will start working on assembling the common house of the Auroville Transit Lounge.We have interviewed Nikadass a potential “user” of Transit Housing. He shares his understanding and feelings of the project, while talking about his personal experience he raises some of his concerns on housing per se in Auroville.

Some more info on the project:Auroville is absorbing the construction costs of the common area, which includes kitchen, dining area, bathrooms and toilets, a lounge, office and meditation house. The cost of the common house will be reimbursed by collecting from the inhabitants a monthly utilization fee. The fee will also cover other infrastructure costs.
3 acres of land are available for the project and the living space for each of the thirty units dependence on the arrangements of families and individuals.
Thus, all those interested should attend the site planning and design workshop scheduled for the end of July.
Users and architects are driven by the project’s spirit and progressiveness and have come up with new design suggestions. At this moment 2 to 3 new housing prototypes are under development. One of them is The Living House with thatched roof, an improved version of the well known Capsule.
