Stone House

Design Atelier as Architects

In Jodhpur, we fondly use stone in design, together with structural concrete and wood. To us, traditional building materials play an important role in architecture, because in the hot 45-degree sun, buildings need to take into account the local weather as also a tool to achieve a connection with the historical ambience. Over the years, the use of local stone has created an omnipresent relationship between the stone urbanscape and architecture. We have added to that mix a contemporary sensibility, and a climate cooling effect of water garden and plants seen through Floor-to-ceiling windows with screens are designed to maximise view over the water gardens, and soft surfaces that do not reflect abundant natural light. The extent of the detailed use of stone screens and expensive detailing is limited by financial possibilities.
