Our picturesque site in Srirangapatnam, on the bank of the Kaveri, is an idyllic expanse overlooking the river and the fields around. Although the site area available was about 40,000 sqft, the client had decided to built ‘just enough’ and have the beautiful landscape sprawl around the built space. We imagined it as four parallel planes placed together to allow for a haven to form in between; a haven which would seamlessly meld with the flora outside, and connect with the Kaveri.
This two-storey structure features a double-height entrance leading to living and dining areas, with ample natural light and river views. Bedrooms have internal balconies and river-facing seating decks. Skylights, Jaisalmer stone, and Attangudi tiles create warmth, while yellow railings provide contrast. Turbo vents in the roof enhance ventilation. These elements integrate with the lush landscape and the Kaveri river.
