There's no better way to blow off some of the city stress than relaxing in the peaceful confines of nature at one of the farm stays near Mumbai (India)
Located in Lonavla amidst lush green expanses, the design of the bungalow is in a minimalist style for an uncluttered look to match the openness of the surrounding. The idea was to make the outside and the inside, a part of each other rather than being separate. A weekend home with plenty of natural light and framed views of the scenery around, the owner’s desire for his home was a modern dwelling against the laid back visual setting. The key principle of design for this project was rooted in the universal element of three dimensional space and form, like the double height volume in the living room, which distinctively is the heart of the design. As a part of the brief, the client also emphasized on optimum use of spaces, to which as a design response we provided full height sliding windows that opened up the interior spaces, extended the living area to the balconies and provided privacy where required. A strict geometry defines the architecture of this building with a well-proportioned façade composition, inspired by the 20th century Italian Architects.
