Sanjay Puri Architects has completed a new sculptural house that’s located in the hot climate of Rajasthan, India, and is home to a family with three generations living together.

Built on a corner lot, the home has been designed with various heights where arches create openings to help keep the house cool on a hot day.

The house was built using locally sourced bricks, sandstone, and lime plaster, and includes processes for water recycling, rainwater harvesting, and solar panels for energy generation.

Arches and cut-outs are featured throughout this modern house.

The interesting play of volumes, open, enclosed, and semi-enclosed spaces can be seen at every level, from the ground floor patio spaces to the upper floor bedrooms.

Inside the home, arches help to shade the interior spaces, like the living room, while also creating welcoming spaces that interact with people walking past in the hallway.
