Arjun Machhan Weekend House

Ahmedabad, India

Year: 2004


Our brief was to have a weekend retreat easy to reach, visited regularly, without the fear of commuting time taken and too much fore thought and planning. An extension of the home and yet without the encumbrance of daily maintenance. A place suitable for singular solitude yet endowed with the capacity to accommodate the gregariousness of fifty. A retreat to rejuvenate the body, mind and the spirit, to reinforce family and to commune with friends.

A ‘Machan’ to watch the sun rise and sunset. To see the moon rise and observe the stars as they traverse the firmament. To be one with the rhythm of the ever-changing seasons. To break the shackles of time. A place where there are no limits and the horizon stretches to infinity. To be infinite.
