Dr Siddappas Residence


Bangalore – Under Construction

An experimental home of a kind, to be built near Amruthahalli, Bangalore. Adobes are cost effective, environmentally friendly and very easy to use in the set paradigms of conventional construction by replacing fired bricks.

So a typical concrete framed building (with a big hat and high boots) are to have infill adobe walls. After searching for local soils, one specimen was selected for making adobes without any stabilizers whatsoever. The sun dried adobe bricks shall be tastefully plastered with mud plasters both inside and outside.

The design as such is aligned to maximize planting space, use grey water for urban agriculture, natural lighting and ventilation techniques. All achievable at a comparable cost with the urban conventional middle class housing about 1800 Rs/Sft (2014).
