House of a Seed Saver
Sangita Sharma, an avid organic farmer and campaigner created a seedbank, Annadana on the very farmland she grew up in.
Back in 2002, when she returned home to Bangalore, after a long stint at globetrotting, she was gifted a site within the coconut tree grove by her loving parents to build her own haven.
A small 2 bedroom house with a living space positioned itself under the tree grove, unobtrusively. The sculpting of house was attempted through these elements
- The tilting roof of living room , opening to sky to gather the “being under the canopy” experience
- The sweeping curved stone wall that backdrops the living space. Also directing itself to the western horizons
- The cylindrical shaft that at once contains 3 special functions, the study, the meditation room and the water tank.
