2,560 sq.ft Compact Home in Kutch | Mandvi House by Spasm Designs

Join membership and obtain detailed eBook of this home with ground plans, pictures & truth file:

Set within the abandoned panorama of Kutch district contoured by Rukmavati river emptying into the Arabian sea, and adorned with a number of seashores, lies a small, traditionally important, municipal city ‘Mandvi’. The city internally is wealthy with veins of dense slender lanes, intently positioned quick conventional properties that allowed restricted exploration in environment. The dynamics of those geographies, led to visualise the home as an introverted object that pulls gentle, primarily from the sky.

Architect Sanjeev Panjabi and Sangeeta Merchant of Spasm Design, constructed this stunning home with regionally sourced Khavda stone

  1. Hi

    Could you share please the supplier contact and price of the Khavda Stone. Thanks.

  2. Please stop saying detailed floor plan as they just provide simple plan which even don't have room dimensions, however it is good for architect but for engineers it is useless guyz, not included any structural plan.

  3. I have 14×30 aprarment .want to make 3 stry ..pls guide me

  4. Sorry 2560 sq feet is wayyyyyy tooooooo compact for me!!!

  5. -A lot of people asking about the "rain thing issue". In my opinion the architect, I guess already included that in hes design consideration. The place maybe don't rain that much.

    -Also if the family wants to celebrate that moment having rain and to get wet, and they love it and requested the terrace should be opened. Then that is definitely a precious space for them,not for you, but for the user of that space. Remember that we have different influences of architecture. Religion or beliefs of human also be considered,and that shows respect for them and love.

    – It is designed for a specific client,that includes both physical and non-physical context .

  6. A very nice design that could be enlarged and modified to build a townhome in the US, I'm guessing.

  7. What is the background music track??

  8. how does it protect from the rain?

  9. Please upload designs for plot size of 60ft(front) × 40ft(depth)

  10. What if it rains on terrace?

  11. really buildofy hats off to you for posting such elaborated videos for a long time now… I mean that there are so many videos on beautiful homes which just doesn't explain why a building is built in a certain way and that really irritates me as I am an architecture student I really wished that someday architects would expalin why a certain thing was built in a way and see what God did it just showed me this channel…:)
