Rishikesh House by Rajiv Saini + Associates


A scooping concrete roof cantilevers over the rear entrance to a house by the Ganges River in northern India. Mumbai architects Rajiv Saini + Associates designed the single-storey residence, which burrows into the sloping riverside terrain. A spa is located where the building tunnels into the hill and a tree-lined courtyard is concealed between the house and landscape. Rough masonry walls define the main entrance, while both angular and curved concrete walls separate individual rooms.
