recycled farm house: mysore

gp.capt. shetty‘Recycling’  as a concept, refers both to the re-use of materials from previous uses as well as the design with the possibility of re-use at a later time. This would drive require attention to parameters such as modularity, systems of joinery and combination of materials, re-usability of materials and ease of dismantling.

This project  re-used  building components from various sources; wooden columns and beams, locks, door handles etc. Including Mangalore tiles for  roof from a dismantled house with its wooden rafters. The stabilised mud block walls are  left largely un-plastered.
