A RESIDENCE IN A VILLAGE NANDINA, 2004

This house for the architect's father is set in a village, and caters to the client's wishes that the building be two-storied, and that it appear to be sitting on a green grassy slope. The users are the client, his extended family, and his urban-based children who yearn to soak up all the nature they can during their periodic visits to the house. The portico, which overlooks the pond and the northern view extending out over paddy-fields, becomes the center of life for the short times that the family is united there.



The residence sits on a grassy slope.
