Textual content description offered by the architects. The location is a ravishing non-public land of 8 acres which is a dense forest with a lot of coconut timber, mango timber, Nutmeg, Teak, and so on. Discovering an ideal place for the farmhouse grew to become troublesome since we don’t wish to reduce down any timber on website. By making a grid on website, the type of the constructing has been achieved in accordance with the tree place.
We wished no metal or concrete construction and we don’t wish to disturb the prevailing pure surroundings so we proposed a timbrel vault construction. This timbrel Vault approach has been adopted as per my mentor Ar.Senthil Kumar Doss’s catenary-based vault buildings. Twin Vault construction has been completed with the dimension of 36’ and 32’ width with the peak of 13’ and 11’ every. The vault type has been fashioned based mostly on the place of the timber and pure environment which camouflages with the location. An exquisite courtyard with a small water physique has been fashioned in between the dual vault the place the areas are clear and open to the courtyard. This courtyard creates pure lighting contained in the areas. Completely different ranges have been created within the constructing in accordance with the location contour.
Sithu kal – Small bricks of three layers have been completed for the vault. These bricks are used for the madras terrace roof approach in South India which is not getting used. The group individuals who make these bricks grew to become unemployed. Through the use of this materials we make a group to work collectively bringing again sustainability.
Waste Damaged tiles from factories have been reused for the 4th layer to keep away from costly waterproofing chemical substances. Reused rods have been used for the frameworks and helps of the vault throughout development which has been additional used for constructing the built-in furnishings like sofas, Breakfast counters, and beds, and in addition for the framework of mudga (reused mudga tiles) roofing above. This mudga tile has been sourced round a 15 km radius making it a domestically accessible sustainable materials. Wooden for furnishings and door has been used from waste wooden which was additionally domestically sourced. To surround the dual vault, poured earth wall has been constructed the place the mud has been collected from the location.
All through the method, my mentor Ar.Vinu Daniel guided and inspired the brand new strategies and strategies. The whole development interval is 8 months and we stayed on the website for the total development interval. Experimenting with totally different supplies as their unique kinds makes the development course of attention-grabbing and the constructing turns into nature pleasant and sustainable. The principle ideology and idea of this farmhouse are to carry out a nature-friendly constructing and use all domestically accessible supplies making it sustainable
