House S is the first of a group of houses designed and built upon an 8.5 acre parcel of land within audible distance from the Karjat river. The owner wished to have a small house (a ‘hut’ as he called it) as an instigator for occupation upon the site. Three more houses on the parcel were already on the drawing boards – and this was intended to function as a ‘cabin’ comfortable enough to allow for extended stays whilst the construction of the other houses progressed. Over the course of many discussions, the minimal dwelling of around 250 sqft that we suggested grew to twice its size, with equivalent outdoor area. It was was no longer a ‘hut’ but a comfortable small dwelling. Thus the moniker House S.
