The project outhouse is an extension of the residence of Mr. Narendra Khamesra, Udaipur, Rajasthan. As every design requirement has a story, so is this, especially extension. Mr. Khamesra wanted to build a recreational and rejuvenation space for his father, as senior Mr. Khamesra started inclining towards outdoors, with his health being a major factor, making walks necessary, but in a safe environment. Hence, half of the plot was left vacant previously, giving ample space to fulfill the requirement. Senior Mr. Khamesra’s choice of vernacular architecture style facilitated with contemporary modern amenities accomplished design guidelines.

In spite of a traditional facelift of the outhouse, all facilities are precisely modern and fulfill all modern-day needs. It is named bespoke outhouse because it is very close to the client’s heart, facilitated with carved, handpicked, furniture, artwork, and furnishings, with construction cost incurred equivalent to that of a normal 3-bed bungalow, clearly reflecting the interest of the client.
In order to achieve so, we used stone masonry, embellished with vernacular painting on the boundary wall, distinguishing the building. It has impacted not only its aesthetic value but also helped to create thermal comfort in the built.
Jaisalmer stone has been used extensively in flooring, columns, and monolith wash basin. The landscape was done keeping comfort and ease of maintenance as a priority, with one bedroom cum lounge, facilities, and columned verandas, providing an informal resting and sheltered interactive space.
The interiors of outhouse are done in traditional Rajasthani haveli style, along with beautiful exclusive handpicked furniture, with bone inlay work. The Colour palette of interiors is quite bright reflecting colors of Rajasthan, complemented with small niches and balanced with subtle exteriors.
The outhouse is comfortably used by the Senior Mr. Khamesra regularly along with his friends as his own connected yet distinct space.
