J.D Villa – Ergodnovate
This united family residence was conceptualized as per Hindu philosophy Panchmahabhuta.
Panchmahabhuta are the five elements that created the universe, us and everything around us.
A quote in one of the ancient books of Hindu philosophy says,
“When Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Sky arise, when the five attributes of elements become manifest then the yogi’s body become purified and he is free from illness, old age and death “
This depicts the connection of human body to these five elements is the key reason behind an individual’s wellness.
Blending these five elements- Akasha, Bhumi, jal, agni and vayu in different proportions was our aim while conceptualizing this project,
Akasha (sky) : open to sky spaces are created in form of court yard which connects different spaces of house.
Bhumi (earth) : The ground floor structure gets blended with grass counters and natural stone boulders. The use of natural stone in façade keeps the entire habitat connected with Bhumi – the mother earth.
Jal (water) : small water bodies are placed near the entrance and the verandah with fountains which creates soothing sound, atmosphere and ambiance.
Agni (fire) : the sunlight at dawn and dusk penetrates the entire house through the glass facades and open to sky court yards giving natural light through out the daytime.
Vayu (wind) : specially designed stone jali are placed in the wind directions which provides natural ventilation and screening from light, imbuing their surroundings with a calm, cool and airy environment. During the day, as sunlight streams through the jali, the patterns forms magical shadow and reflection that grace the adjacent floors and wall.
