Situated in an ecologically rich site and surrounded by Mangalore-tile clad rural houses, the project was meant to be a residential design proposal for ‘Syamantak’. ‘Syamantak’ is a center for experiential, lifelong learning and sustainable living situated in Dahamapur, Malvan. The architectural intervention would aim to be an extension of their vision, focusing on the comfort and experience of the residents whilst extending the philosophy of ‘Syamantak’ itself. Special attention was to be paid to their ideologies and the translation of their ethos into architecture as well as other allied activities and functions.
