Nayantara Residence: A Home with a Heart

What makes a house a home? - A rhetorical question that built environment professionals are often encountered with. Popular belief is that a home is a place where you feel warm and cozy. You have things around you that are special and have meaning, but most of all you are surrounded by people you love and who love you. It is, therefore, the family that makes a house a home by living in it and making it special. When it comes to design, it requires thoughtful reflection of complex cultural, social and psychological traits of the users. The featured project by architect Jishnu Kumar Das is an example of such inside-out approach of space design that puts a family at the heart of a home.

Administrative Building for DIU | Archeground Ltd.

Archeground, one of the highly acclaimed design practices in the country, is producing innovative and functional architecture since its inception.

Ajo Idea Space | Dehsar Works

Situated on a long, narrow plot in a residential neighbourhood, this award winning café features vertically layered yet singular space stands beneath an elegant vaulted ceiling.

The juxtaposition of building materials and the greenery that surround them is endlessly fascinating and adds warmth to the interior.

Bidyanondo Sampriti Orphanage School

The school is a bamboo-built structure on a raised timber platform and closely geared to the site and surrounding views of water and farmlands. The work is strongly archetypal, with the rectilinear plan metaphorically centred on a ‘hearth’ in the foyer. In that sense, the constructions of ‘Indigeneity’ are both formal and spatial. The building constructs an ‘Indigenous’ space and imagery which connects with the local spirit. It is a site of cultural production, an archetypal quest for an architecture that is sensitive to the local context and indigenous building tradition. - Editor
