MICRO HOMES, MAHIM
Aim is to design an efficient and compact layout called the Micro-Home for Mumbai. The layout is designed in a manner that the common utility areas are placed in the center so that it reduces the passage area. The Units have a static layout for prefabricated construction, along with dynamic furniture systems to adapt for its use in day and night.
The landscape design concept is a composition of intersecting and overlapping circles and planes creating interesting spaces. The landscape spaces are carefully designed and integrated within a composition that define kid’s play area, garden spaces, yoga and meditation spaces along with the multipurpose court. It creates a seamless link between the indoor clubhouse activities and outdoor activities.
The kitchen garden located adjacent to the clubhouse and kids play area reinforces healthy living and encourages people to take part in garden activities. Varied garden spaces and seating spaces around the building periphery and the driveway are perfectly and elegantly arranged to create an evolving experience as one moves through the site. A garden pavilion on the podium level with seating areas and an amphitheatre allows residents to mingle and interact with each other as well as create relaxing vantage points.
BUNGALOW AT PALI
Designing a Bungalow in the developing district of India - Pali has given us an opportunity to explore local materials and innovate its use with technology.
Evolution of Indian Contemporary Architecture means fusion of local materials with a strong simple geometry to highlight the scheme.
Green bio-walls and plantation in the courtyards helps to cool the micro environment. Stone walls and stone jali railing proposed with the intention to increase the thermal barrier.
Since the bungalow is surrounded by joint built environments, the stack vent in the center of the building helps for natural ventilation. It also enables for the controlled, natural light during the day.
