The Mango House

Studio PKA has designed the ‘mango house‘ in the quaint coastal town of Alibagh, India. 

Surrounded by a canopy of lush green trees, the project aims to connect the city-dwelling family with nature.

At two storeys high, the house allows the branches of the trees to spill over onto the deck, overlooking the pool. 

Multiple large glass fenestrations line the exposed brick walls, casting reflections and flooding the interiors with natural light. 

The windows along with the four expansive entrances along the north-south and east-west axes further blur the lines between indoor and outdoor.
