Architecture: Khopoli House by SPASM Design Architects

Mumbai, India firm SPASM Design Architects took its cue from the dark tones of the basalt which surrounds the site on a rocky hillside in the Maharashtra region to present one of the more creative presentations I've enjoyed to date.  Somewhat Tadao Ando-esque, the minimalism and the materials use really peak my interest, and I love the incorporation of the iconic mid-century furniture pieces.

The use of robust concrete for the Khopoli House was dictated by the drastic climatic changes that the region experiences, which include high temperatures in the summer and heavy rainfall during the monsoon season, while natural stone was used for key details like flooring.
