Residential Architecture: Utsav House by Studio Mumbai: “..set low into the ground, protected by four black basalt walls that enclose a shaded courtyard, within which pools, pavilions and garden provide shelter for living..The spaces are arranged along the periphery walls that define and support the structures of the house. Different heights are created to suit the functions and dimensions of the interiors. Concrete slabs, basalt stone walls and wood for framing are used to construct the buildings, while walls and floor are stained in pigmented cement plaster to mimic the dry grasses of the summer, setting the buildings into the landscape..” Nature, interior courtyard, stone, wood, louvres, filtered light, interesting interior volumes, central garden and water feature..
