Project Description

This Farmhouse is a private residence at an organic farm located in rural Mumbai, Maharashtra, near the city of Mumbai. The site is eleven acres in size, undulating with steep contours and terraces. The lack of locally available skilled masons in the area posed quite a challenge. We responded to these circumstances by taking on the contractor’s role ourselves, working directly with villagers from the nearest settlement. To our delight the enthusiasm displayed by these locals was extraordinary.
