Aalloa hills, 2009
The site for this weekend house for a modest family is in Aalloa hills along the Sabarmati River. The proposed design is a low earth hugging linear dwelling type that evokes a modest feel. The linear type allows all the spaces to be oriented towards the valley and the river. The design of the house is intended to be a dynamic response where it folds and adapts to align with the contour lines, thereby making the house an integrated part of the landscape and also frame views of the valley.
