TOURISM DEVELOPMENT IN HOPE ISLAND & KONASEEMA REGION

HOPE ISLAND, ANDHRA PRADESH

The intention of this project was to create a landmark destination that is a natural getaway hub for the Kakinada- Hope Island-Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary loop for the locals and international visitors.Hope Island is a part of the Kakinada – Hope Island-Konaseema tourist circuit. The proposed activities in Hope Island are Boardwalks, Interpretation Centre, Tourists Village and Water Jetties. Most of these proposed activities are ecologically sensitive development using sensitive materials and smaller smart interventions with minimal impact on the land.

The modular architectural definition of the proposal provides a combination of positive and negative places/open spaces (green spaces, buffers, courtyards etc.) to tie the proposal together. The mixed use clusters provided along the line of the walkways/ boardwalks will facilitate walkability throughout the site and activate the streets to give a tourist district feel. Two types of façade language including glass and bamboo suggested along with exposed concrete and aluminum as a roof structure.

  • Practice 'Responsible Tourism' with minimal interventions resulting into larger positive impact
  • Better connectivity to form a cohesive network of tourist sports throughout the region.
  • Working in coordination and approval from Forest department, Coastal Regulation Zone and EGREE
