The large living room is enclosed in glass walls on either side, connecting the indoors to the outdoors. Rammed-earth walls and a cantilevered upper floor keep the ground floor cool in the hottest of months.

5. Design around natureLocation: Ahmedabad, GujaratDesigner: SPASM Design ArchitectsTalk about minimising environmental impact. None of the 284 existing trees or the extensive lawn were harmed in the construction of this house. As the living space has glass walls running along two sides, it seamlessly connects with the surrounding verdant environment. The wooden ceiling and other wooden accents further up the nature quotient.

The entrance space moves forward to transform into a living area, encased within giant sliding glass walls. The transparent walls allow the living and dining to seamlessly connect with the surrounding verdant environment. The shade provided by the cantilevered upper level keeps this area cool. The architects incorporated another feature to beat the tropical heat – a manually rammed earthen wall made from thick earth mixed with eight per cent cement. Earth walls have insulating properties. “During the day the outer surface of the wall absorbs the heat, but by the time it transmits it to the inside, it is night-time. So the temperatures remain pleasant throughout the day,” explains Merchant.
