Project in focus: Kotagiri House is a bungalow in the Nilgiris that blurs the boundaries between interior comfort and the allure of the outdoors. The structure’s design began without walls, placing emphasis on the essential framework. Elements such as a sloping roof with earthy tiles, a stone-clad chimney, wooden ceilings, and a dynamic indoor-outdoor bar lend character and echo the natural landscape.

Project in focus: A courtyard house in Colombo marries the homeowners’ Indian and Sri Lankan roots.

Its design is a confluence of the Dutch modern tropical influence of Sri Lanka and the colonial- traditionalist nature of Madras (now Chennai). Brick, cut cement and timber make up its material palette. The courtyard of this home forms a double-height internal volume and sets the tone of the living and dining spaces. The home gives the illusion of a floating tree house with indoor-outdoor spaces seamlessly interspersing with each other.

Project in focus: The Peeyush Residence in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, is a home meant for a joint family with its design inspired by the client’s love for fluid forms and the architect’s experimental style. One of the defining features of the project lies in the cleverly integrated common spaces. From the inviting lawn on the ground floor to the expansive terrace on the first floor and the extended deck on the second floor, each communal area is thoughtfully designed to encourage and foster family time. Throughout the dwelling, the design team has meticulously crafted spaces that reflect the client’s affinity for arches and transcend the boundaries of a traditional home.

Project in focus: A modernist and minimal exploration of the cube, this residence is an artist’s home and studio in Kochi. The brick-clad structure has a humble nine-grid layout that is unexpectedly superfluous through its volume and fundamental parameters of symmetry, order and repetition. Surrounded by verdant green fields, the home’s uniformity of material and colour palette act as a continuous unfolding of its architectural space.

Project in focus: Chemrey House is a three-storey, load-bearing mud building in a small Ladakhi village where the temperatures drop to minus 30 degrees Celsius in winters. Located 3,650 metres above sea level, in a cold desert, the home’s primary function is to keep its residents warm in such extreme weather. Pure in its form, the home uses materials available in the village such as local stone, wood, rammed earth and soil. Courtyards have been an intrinsic part of Ladakh as cultural spaces in monasteries and villages for people to gather. The house features one right at the entrance, keeping it rooted to its region.
