Kachra mane literally translates into Trash home in Kannada. What makes this house unique is the primary thought that guides the design, which is reusing and recycling as much as possible. The house that has been designed by the architectural firm Maya Prexis, and the interiors by Vismaya Interiors, has been constructed out of demolished houses, scrap wood and second hand products. Reusing the surplus pinewood packing cases with a different spin, they have designed the different elements of the house like windows, staircase, kitchen cupboards and book shelves. Even the structural system of the house has been reused from the existing building. Built with just half of what a conventional house would cost, they save money and resources further by integrating solar power system, rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling.
