Khadakvasla House by SPASM Design Architects

A magnificent house!

Enjoy the pictures and the brief but well substantiated description by architects
Located in Khadakvasia on the leeward side of the western Ghats
In the vast openness of the surrounding, it made sense to trap a mysterious forest of dense green by stringing the rooms around it as an intimate
Shangri-La against the infinite. This courtyard allows for a private dip in the thicket of the lush vegetation.
A timber lattice over the verandah sets a backdrop that negotiates between the complete enclosures and the central courtyard. This transitional space, of dappled shade promotes a lifestyle in close connection with the outdoors.
The living room, a counterpoint in the house is a tall glass box which will throb with the flickering of the fireplace on cold evenings and will frame the changing hues of the sky as the sun sets.
