House on Arches
Architecture, interior design and art work of a 13,000 SFT farmhouse villa nestled within a 10-acre property close to the Mulshi river in Maharashtra.
Nestled in the original landscape of water bodies and views of surrounding hills, this family home is designed on stilts keeping in mind the environmental context of heavy rainfalls and flooding during the monsoons.
The arches on the first floor take advantage of the surrounding views, creating multiple vistas, thus, inviting the landscape into habitable areas and creating a sense of timelessness.
The architecture and landscape of this farmhouse villa is inspired by the seamless weave of the popular Indian textile - Sari - essentially, bridging the stilt and first floor levels as one large piece of fabric nestled within the 10 acre property.
