Aug 30, 2017

A retreat to the hills? You don’t have to go too far. Here is a house done by the Khosla Associates in the Sahyadris, that offer a serene escape into nature.

 

The outdoors

Located in the Western Ghats, surrounded by the Sahyadris, the location itself is a retreat into the natural beauty of Indian topology.

The house is spread over 2100 sq ft that are divided into two major spaces- A view during the day and a quiet sanctuary for the night.The external space is permeable to the natural surroundings whereas the indoors offers an introverted cosy space to unwind. The home is built over a single level pavilion and reflects the choices of its inhabitants in being subtle and modest.

A focus of this structure is the dramatic skylights to invoke natural lighting to get inside the home apart from just its peripheral areas. The skylights offer a gloomy luminescence to the interiors. The stone that is used largely in the external facade was sourced from the area itself. The Black basalt, a volcanic stone, is present in abundance in the Deccan Plateau.

While the furniture was customised, the accessories were sourced locally from Maharashtra. The house was made after considering its impact in its natural environment while retaining the influence of nature into the space.
