The Courtyard House, Alibag, Residential-Farmhouses

The clients had a strong vision for the house and the lifestyle that they wanted. Along with a strong preference for a more traditional approach to the built form, they were also keen to use sustainable materials and technology as a part of daily life in their home. The roofs are constructed using traditional building techniques, with a wooden frame and terracotta roofing tiles. The house is not air-conditioned and is naturally ventilated. Using a system of wooden louvered panels that sit just below the roofline, the architects used the natural flow of air to aid cooling in the house – the panels let out heated air and bring in fresh air through the openings below keeping the house significantly cooler throughout the day. White lime plaster is used as the wall finish, creating a permeable, breathing surface that further keeps the house cool and the walls damp free.
