MA003, at Mangalore, Karnataka, India, by mamama

Located in Mangalore, this 3-bedroom apartment is a contemporary take on a traditional south Indian home. The seamless open plan allows a lot of natural light to flood the living-dining-kitchen area. The earthy polished plaster on the wall, the muted tones of the fabric play off the brass set-pieces and wood accents of the furniture making this apartment space with balance and grace.

Dr. Vishnuvardhan Memorial, Mysore, Karnataka

Unbuilt – Dr. Vishnuvardhan Memorial, at Mysore, Karnataka, M9 Design Studio – Nischal Abhaykumar

Given that the monument sits in a rural setting, its immediate surroundings are not particularly welcoming. In response, we have enclosed the site with a Gabion wall that provides privacy and guides visitors along a “discovery path” leading to the Memory Monument and the photo gallery all situated within a park-like setting. Crafted entirely out of fine metal, the Memory Monument is in the shape of a “kada” (famously worn as lucky charm by Dr. Vishnuvardhan) stands at a daunting height of 10 metres above the level of lower ground.

As one walks around the building it reveals its characters, punctured wall with windows of various sizes and hues, telescopic vaults and sloping roofs at jaunty angles. Though located near a lake in the north- it exactly is not a very pleasant view at lower levels since there is also a large stormwater drain flowing at the edge. – Biome Environmental Solutions
