The Leaf House, Alibaug by SJK Architects

I came across this rather spectacular house designed by Mumbai based firm, SJK Architects, in Dezeen Magazine and thought it was interesting because its form was so different from the usual straight lined, cuboid shaped houses that I am drawn to and tend to feature on the blog. This house is modern, contemporary and minimal, but its also organic, and so graceful. 

This family home in Alibaug, is divided into 5 individual living spaces that fan out around a central courtyard. Each space is covered by concrete, leaf shaped canopies supported by angled steel columns. The house is nestled in greenery and the beauty of its architecture is that it really celebrates this beautiful setting. 

So as not to outdo the simplicity of the architecture, the interiors are minimal with white walls and polished concrete floors throughout. 

Take a look and tell me what you think....
