The Holiday House Khopoli House or The Fusion Between Nature And Concrete

This holiday home was built on a rocky hill in the highlands of Khopoli, Maharashtra, India. Here, the landscape is very changeable between March and July. The monsoon and the humidity follow the heat and the climatic conditions are unstable. The architects of SPASM Design Architects based in Mumbai wanted to take into account this context precisely, to create a house which fits naturally in the local context. They chose for building material basalt which is the local rock. The facades are covered with a mixture of water, sand, and cement. Finally, concrete appeared to them as the best response to the changing climatic conditions of the site. The holiday home has been designed as a refuge that captures the elements of nature from the outside to import them indoors. She appropriates the water, the sun, the air, and the general view. Another widely used material is stone, both in interior and exterior coatings. In the house, the layout is warmer. Light colors and wood predominate in the decoration. This holiday home is a real success story of modern architecture.
