“Purity in materials and forms characterise this house. The idea was to produce a ‘brutal’ raw building that has nothing to hide, revealing itself to the outside world that it stands bold without any fear. The deliberate use of one material gives a greater imposition to the above concept. The specific project – the architect’s own house- was very much influenced by Le Corbusier’s great projects in India. This is a primary use of concrete in it’s purest form. Especially today where everybody tries so hard to achieve a ‘perfect’ concrete, for the architect this stands as a statement to what concrete is all about – real and bold.”
