BUILT UP AREA:
The house served as home for the chairperson of a local NGO as well as a temporary accommodation for volunteers engaged in the health and education sector at the NGO. The placement of the house was along the existing terraces of the site to maximize on the southern sun for warmth, and the stunning views of the Nanda Devi Range in the North.
The ambition of sustainability in the project was to embrace not just environmental aspects of sustainability but also social and economic aspects. The designers, with support from the clients, used locally available material, and local skill to build the structure.
