House in Mango Orchard
PROJECT AREA: 22,000 Sq.ft. | On-going
Amidst streams flowing down from the gentle hills of Alibaug, lies a multi-family weekend home in an 8 acre lush mango orchard.
The building treads very lightly on the earth to least disturb the existing flora and fauna; with plantations being grown carefully to allow the indigenous species to co-exist. Each home nestles within the branches of the trees, encloses a swimming pool and is connected through pathways and plinths.
Simple structures with glass walls and wooden doors, the houses appear like they grew with the trees. They are interspersed with semi-open spaces such as staircases washed with skylight, and courtyards which stream filtered light from between mango trees.
