Atali Ganga in Rishikesh, India by RLDA

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Article source: RLDA

RLDA completed a ground breaking resort, Atali, 30 kilometers from Rishikesh on the banks of the river Ganga.

Distinguished by its use of stone, reed and steel wire, the project abandons a commonplace aesthetic and other such iconographic elements to distinguish itself in favour of a building that draws its aesthetic from the means, methods and modes of its construction.

The project aims to develop a single house located in the centre of Parede, Cascais, in a site characterized as Historical Urban Space. The lot of the house as a particular elongated and thin configuration like the adjacent lot on the left side – South.

The nearby buildings are part of a summer houses morph-typological group that proliferated in the Portuguese coastline in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. These houses were usually built as second houses or summer residences, presenting, in general, a garden that involves them throughout their perimeter. The exception is made in smaller lots of recent date where it was usual the implantation of terraced houses, as a way to potentiate the opposite top sideband.
