Direction India, and more precisely Rajasthan, where the inhabitants face a desert climate. Temperatures rise to above 40°C for eight months of the year, which led the studio Sanjay Puri Architects to think of an ideal villa for a family with three generations living together, on three levels, to withstand these extremes. Their idea? An envelope designed with curved lines that surround Mirai House of Arches, creating semi-open spaces and deep alcoves at the garden level. The result? A silhouette that dramatically reduces heat gain, ensuring a cool house in the hot summer months, while providing open, sheltered spaces around the house.
