Solar Wall House. Mary Mathew House
The house was a first essay in sustainability (at the very start of our practice) with form, and space shaped by passive solar principles.
Thickened walls on the south-west, shade more open verandah spaces towards the northern and eastern exposures. Inverts the traditional format of Bangalore’s bungalow by turning away from the street to create a rear garden court.
In collaboration with Architect Soumitro Ghosh
