Location: Medchal, Secunderabad, Telangana, India
Project Work Status: Competition Projects
Client: Mr. Pradeep Mocharla
Project Started: 2013
The farm house of Pradeep Mocharla is located in the outskirts of the Hyderabad city, which is a perfect location for a farm house. It is away from the daily fast moving city life. The farm house can be defined as an example of a semi sustainable low cost house.
The materials used in the construction are mainly stone, brick and wood . The concept of exposed brick and stone structure has been used for the walls. This gives the farm house the feel an old traditional house. Slopping roofs are used which add on to the character of the farm house.The slabs are traditional Madras Terrace , with timber rafters on which stone slabs have been placed. Lime mortar is used instead of cement as the binding material; this decreases the carbon footprint of the project. The placements of rooms, elements and the setbacks are dictated by Vaastu Shaastram.
Central Courtyards illuminate the house and bring fresh air in the hot Hyderabad climate.
