The House of Concrete Experiments in India
June 16, 2022 - India
Sculptural concrete walls cast with debris and a range of finishes define this home in the coastal town of Alibag, India. The House of Concrete Experiments, the dwelling has a fragmented form that prevented the removal of any of the mango trees on the site during construction.
The residence is characterised by its concrete walls as "sculptural elements".
Cast from waste acquired from the site, these walls range in thickness from 450 to 1000 millimetres and have contrasting pigmentations and textural finishes.
The House of Concrete Experiments is organised around a large and high-ceilinged space at its centre that contains a living room, dining area, bar and study. A concrete floor inlaid with black stones is contrasted by a smooth concrete ceiling with geometric skylights and roughcast walls that frame a seating area and niches for sculptures.
