House at Navdarshanam

2,000 sq.ft. House. Architecture.

This is a project I worked on when I was a part of Biome environmental, Bangalore. It is 1350 sqft house sitting over a 650sqft lower floor which has a library, meeting room and a meditation space.

Background: This house belongs to a community of followers of the Gandhi Peace foundation. The community has a few houses where people stay and take care of running the place.

Villagers from the nearby hamlet come here to make wholesome foods. They run the community kitchen. Some of the products like pickles, powders are supplied to the city.The community doesn’t have a grid connection and runs on solar energy. They have their own cattle shed and believe in simple living. This house which we built there has also been made keeping in spirit with the place.
