Some homes exist within natural vistas, basking in jade glory, and eternally grateful for the views. Some other homes become intelligent parts of their natural setting. They take on their shades and character, and become indistinguishable.
House on a Stream belongs to the latter category. As such it is a sublime presence in a green cove at the town of Alibaug in Maharashtra. You will therefore be forgiven for thinking of it as a non-human construct. Even the principals of Architecture BRIO, Robert Verrijt and Shefali Balwani, refer to the home as an “organism”. A creature which has its own limbs and wings. With this demeanour it is designed to complement and evolve with the surroundings.
