architecture brio has completed a residential property that unobtrusively occupies the undulating indian landscape. situated at the foothills of the western ghats, a designated UNESCO world heritage site, the dwelling has been titled ‘the riparian house’ — a name derived from its riverside location. positioned just below a hillock, the residence is partially concealed beneath a vegetated roof that merges with the rolling terrain and forms an extension of the landscape. as a result of its insulative properties, this natural canopy also aids in keeping the house cool.

internally, occupants are afforded views towards western sunsets and the adjacent river that winds its way across the surrounding fields. along the house’s central spine, landscaped steps lead to a pool deck, while a second stairway connects to the home’s main living accommodation. this axis culminates in a light-filled courtyard where stone boulders, uncovered during the excavation process, evoke a sense of being at one with the landscape.
