Rammed Earth House Adventure
Indeed, an adventure, the residence design was full of intricate design challenges, with a perfect set of requirements which did justice to the scenic beautiful site. We have tried our best to incorporate every requirement possible. Views to the east, solar gain from the south, blocking cold winds from the north & west, interacting indoor spaces with outdoors, minimum heated covered area, Rammed Earth construction methodology, separation of public and private circulation, plot size limitation, multi-usability of spaces, open plan, building essentials & services and many more considerations like these gave birth to the layout and form of the building proposed.
The design follows completely modern lines but at the same time it is adaptive to a lot of variables, i.e. the same design can be transformed with sloping roofs if essentially required. Moreover, the heated covered area is slightly below the limit mentioned. Even though we have given adequate sizes to all the spaces, still any space the client wants can be increased very slightly, considering the structural constraints.
