2. Location: Ahmedabad, GujaratFirm: SPASM Design ArchitectsBuilt: 2016This was a house built to preserve the 284 trees on its site and to take maximum advantage of their presence.

Sprinklers activated by timers humidify the courtyards, which are planted with ferns, arums (Monsteras), Alocasias, Philodendrons, Raphis palms, Terminalias and other such plant varieties. The entrance is a 16-metre single-span space, free of columns, with a 2.4-metre-high canopy. The sides are bound with vertical wooden pivoting louvres, creating a filter through which the breezes from the main courtyard can flow freely while the sunlight is screened out.
