A 3.5 Acre riverside property, lush and serene, is invaluable to the balance of the region and when a home is planned as habitat, the abundance of the land increases and nature becomes a friend.
A holistic integration of a human home and farm into a slice of natural perfection, beside the river and amidst the biodiversity
Straddling the MANMADE and the NATURAL, we integrated a home, a farm and all its functionality into the site
We designed the home as a womb within the site, with much of the land being left as is. Walkways and planting, both planned and natural, weave together to create a WHOLESOME space. The natural contour was left intact leaving room for the monsoon river to express its spate, monkeys to roam wild and the occasional elephant to pass through.
