Remodel a Nineteenth-Century Villa in Ribandar, India

Villa Ribander is a residential project designed by Raya Shankhwalker Architects in 2016.

It is located in Ribandar, Goa, India.

“The villa was originally built in the early 19th century and is located on the banks of the Mandovi River in Goa, India. The design brief entailed retaining as much of the original structure as possible and adding a new wing as an extension.

The villa was originally built in the early 19th century and is located on the banks of the Mandovi River in Goa, India. The design brief entailed retaining as much of the original structure as possible and adding a new wing as an extension.

The villa has an unassuming entrance off a main road through the original structure and it slowly unfolds gradually increasing in transparency as one moves through the house closer to the river. The interior design includes a blend of modern furniture and found pieces. Careful planning and craft have produced a house that has both, the nostalgia of the past, and the practicality of the present.”
