This house designed by Studio Mumbai looks and feels as though it has existed on this lot since before time itself. Your eye travels across the landscape and only stops on the house once you realize it isn’t completely part of the natural environment. The five-acre plantation, which makes up the property seamlessly fades into the courtyard of the house and on into the interior. Design like this is a beautiful example of what contemporary architecture can be when vernacular and texture are studied as thoroughly as form.
