Bhagwat is a weekend residence on the outskirts of Ahmedebad in Gujurat, India. Composed of three main sections – the drum, the veranda and the stockade – each space was sited with respect to the larger landscape of the project. Brick was used innovatively, with specially made extra flat styles and different sizes, to create the ‘vault’ that is the main living area. The veranda includes a glass dining pavilion at one end that faces the gardens and the stockade houses two rooms and a pool at the back. Other facilities include a projection room, a shaded deck, a water tank with lilies, and an India garden with an elevated trampoline. Definitely lots to keep a person busy for the weekend.
