Mango Tree House.JPG

The farm house is conceived as a performative tool, consistent with the hot and dry climate and aspirations of the urban user in a rural context. The design is sited on an existing plinth with two muscular masses wrapping around a mango tree, tied by an elevated bridge defining a split-level court. The architectural strategies are prompted by economy in use of material, energy and finances (built on a budget of Rs. 20 Lakhs). Large shade of the tree and a parasol filler-slab roof cover the entire structure with the extended plinth becoming the primary, nebulous living court.
