Cement plant workers in a small Indian town get a new home whose architecture nods to Le Corbusier and Japanese modernist architecture
March 16, 2022
The unusual shape of the balconies is due to the hot climate: for eight months of the year, the temperature in these places stays above 35°C. Each apartment has a corner stepped layout and is oriented to the north. The colors of the balconies are inspired by the famous Indian festival of colors Holi and its main colors: red, blue, yellow.
The building turned out not only unusual, but also environmentally friendly. It has a natural ventilation system, organized rainwater harvesting, and energy is supplied from the remains of a cement plant.< ul class="related-entities-list__list" data-v-76f1e660>
