Home Sweet Home, Yelahanka, Bangalore

Bangalore 2008-2009

Architect´s parents home built out of rammed earth. Rainwater harvesting (capacity of 20000 l off grid), Dewats System (Off Grid) , Solar water heating, Natural ventilation (Stack, No fans, No AC), Natural Lighting (Skylights). 30% of site restored with native species.

The aim was to maximize urban agriculture (suburban.. in this case). With 5 terraces and plenty of affordances for planting, the home provides for the vegetable and fruit consumption for a family of 4 year round and more.

The images show how the gardens have expanded on this small 2400 sft plot.
