Residential Architecture: Belavali House by Studio Mumbai: “..Conceived as a pavilion in the garden, the house is positioned between the forest to the east and the terraced rice fields to the west. The house is anchored to a series of undulating stone walls, carefully positioned to mediate the landscape. The functions of the house are carefully organized responding to the levels of the terraced paddy..Floor and walls are rendered seamlessly in pigmented cement plaster and the basic steel structure supports a single roof plane. Masonry walls, glass, wood and timber louvers form the enclosure of the house. The operable facades adjust to changing weather conditions, framing views of the surrounding garden and distant mountains..” Privacy, views, contextual sensibility, wood, louvres, stone..
