Anish Amin House by Atelier dnD

By • Jun 28, 2013

This residence is a 2011 project by Atelier dnD located in Alibaug, India.

Because of the warm, tropical environment, the home has been arranged as a series of indoor/outdoor spaces.

Anish Amin House by Atelier dnD:

“Tropical living is all about blurring the boundaries of indoor and outdoor allowing the inhabitant to use both spaces exclusively as well as in conjunction.

The house is conceived as a series of pavilions held together along a strong central circulation spine. This spine also helps divide the served from service spaces of the house; the former located in front with the latter behind separated by the circulation spine.

The pavilions open up to large decks serving for a seamless inside outside living experience; tropical architecture demands the balance of living indoors as well as outdoors.

The use of traditional lean too roofs and pitched roofs are complimented with linear walls which give a contemporary flavour to the house.”
