studio mumbai

we've been enjoying looking at the work of studio mumbai based in india (found via one of our favourite blogs - the best time of the day). beautiful use of wood, glass, stone, water, fabric, with beautiful shapes that play with light & dark. we love the wooden slated screens that occur in many of their projects and the use of agricultural shade net that wraps the structure of the reading room project to let in light & air.

"The essence of our work lies in the relationship between land and architecture, it requires coming to terms with the presence of the environment through the succession of seasons. Projects are developed through careful consideration of place and a practice that draws from traditional skills, local building techniques, materials, and an ingenuity arising from limited resources"
