A house with 49 trees in India

The single-family house designed by Studio Renesa on the outskirts of Delhi combines a set of volumes, vertical planes, frames, overhangs and views with the rich foliage trees.

The House with 49 trees is spread over three floors on a trapezoidal plot and takes shape from the tropical arboreal landscape that surrounds it on one side.

The architecture consists of stereometric volumes of different heights enriched by a series of superstructures: fragmented screens, vertical planes, frames, and projecting terraces. The foliage of trees and plants, free to climb, intertwine around these elements in contrast with the roughness and rhythm of the house materic dress: rough concrete, white plastered walls, grey stone, pink sandstone and red steel strips.

In the interiors, local light-coloured stones entirely cover the rooms and the common areas distributed on the floors open onto a pool of water hidden in the garden and fed by a Barragan inspired waterfall.
