A tastefully designed white haven, a finely detailed marvel, a beautiful specimen of elegant material palette; these are just a few words that describe a minimalist house designed by architect Sachin Agshikar. An architect known for his work of substance, utilitarian architecture and site-driven approach, he upholds it all and more by means of this stunning residence in Ahmedabad. The subtle yet asserting interiors of this humble abode, will blow your mind away.
The practice of architecture is constantly on the lookout for new languages of articulation. Through newer materials or different interpretations of the same; through experimental play with colours, shapes and volumes; through the use of new technologies, a new aesthetic is constantly being sought out. This endeavour, that makes architecture out of mere buildings, is on flamboyant display in two projects by French architects Jakob and MacFarlene. The Orange Cube (2011) and Euronews (2015), both buildings located at Lyons emerge from a common conceptual genus with differing morphology. They seem to have initiated what might be a series of similarly conceptualised structures that show the potential for more playful evolutions in future.
A lot is said about sustainability these days. It has been a buzzing topic making rounds in every circle and every profession, especially architecture. There is a significant increase in the environmental consciousness. Deliberate decisions are made, to try and incorporate principles of sustainability into the design, at least to some extent. Apart from functionality, there is something really appealing about an eco-friendly home, as a calming presence is felt within. In India, Bengaluru was one of the first cities to accept the idea of eco-friendly homes. Studies point to a total of 39 green buildings in this Silicon Valley of India. So let’s take a look at some of the best sustainable models thriving in India's 'garden city'!

It is said that, ‘If you have a garden and a library you have everything you need.’ We sure do have plenty of libraries, but there is a definite shortage of green spaces in our cities. Gardens help a city in numerous ways. Not only are they lungs of the city, but they also bring a lot peace and calm to the citizens after a tiring day. Having green spaces does a lot of good to the body as well as the mind. Despite knowing and accepting the genuine need of green spaces, we are unable to do something about it. The reason for this is shortage of land and the consequent real estate price hike. While we hope that someday the gap between people and their requirement of open spaces is filled, there is another worthwhile solution that isn’t a perfect replacement but can do some good – vertical gardens. Let’s understand a little in depth what they are.
