Cottage House | Uneven

Cottage House | Uneven

From the Architect : Placed in a very serene context this Weekend homes consist of 44 cottage House units; planned in phases over a stretch of Shanti Lake, which weaves beautifully into a rustic rural surrounding and adds to be a perfect get away for its inhabitants.

The layout of the entire site was planned simple and linear. Each cottage holds basic necessities that one would need for a short stay. Compact traditional interior design with a combination of rustic finishes and authentic embellishment conjure very beautiful and refreshing experience.

The concept of Landscape Design:

The layout was designed propagating the focus on retaining the natural character of site and scenic lake in the front.  Main points of consideration were:

a) Retaining all existing trees and replantingb) Encouraging local and native vegetation that already grows on the banks in order to retain the existing ecosystem (including the birds, insects, fish etc)

b) Encouraging local and native vegetation that already grows on the banks in order to retain the existing ecosystem (including the birds, insects, fish etc)

c )In the intervention , entire road is made of grass pavers  instead of hard surface to help recharge ground water, reduce heat radiation and enhancing true experience of a green road (as vehicular movement is discouraged within the premise)

d) Special care has been taken to plant:

  • Fruit trees to encourage birds.
  • Flowers of both aesthetic value as well as fragrance.
  • Large trees for shade.

Special care has been taken in terms of retain ‘scale’ after a proper research of such traditional homes in rural India. The rural experience here takes you back in time even though totally equipped with moderns needs.
