Aranya House in India by Modo designs

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Modo designs  

Designed as a single floor dwelling, this house is a luxurious sprawl in the lap of a natural surrounding. The house is responsive to the series of palm trees that existed before and essentially orients itself towards it. It is designed to be inclusive of the natural elements- the sun, earth, water, air and fragments of the blue sky.  The layout segregates through a level difference, the parent’s and son’s living units and yet unites through a meeting place, which is the more open central bay.
