Project Completed: 2007
This 140 sq. m. house, that is only an hour's drive from Kolhapur is much more than just a regular habitat.It becomes a much needed pause amidst today's hectic fast paced professional life in the city. It acts as an energy refueling and recharging node. The orientation of the house not only gives excellent views but it also brings in very good ventilation. Within the house, there is a fluid transparency between various spaces and functions. This creates an open, holistic, unified space that helps connect people with people and with the surroundings.
The building fits snugly into the hilly site balancing the cutting and filling to create a nice sit out lawn in front. This brought the rear of the first floor of this house at the ground level itself, thereby facilitating a landscaped courtyard in the toilet here.
