Competition Brief:
The aim of the competition was to design an ideal home which challenges the participants to rethink the basic functions of a house.
Narrative:
The House is located in a serene place in the lower hills of the Sahyadri mountain ranges of Panchgani in Maharashtra, India. The site is over the sloping edge of a hill with Dhom lake in the north. Over the years, the mountains are adorned by life and somewhere we see those rocks peeping out of the shades of trees. This house is built as a retreat to escape the frenetic pace of city life and to reinvigorate the senses.

The primary objective was to absorb the natural environment, to open the house up to the view, and to serve as a gateway to the serenity and vastness of the hills of Sahyadri. The contoured land allowed us to work with the natural topography of the site.

The main concept is a minimalist house with rich social spaces where one could enjoy the panoramic views and climate of the region. Three levels are planned to take advantage and respect the topography. The infinity pool reflects the dense mountain range and seamlessly blends into the lake.
