Therefore, very careful planning was needed to assure that the house would not disturb the tea plantation. Save this picture!© Rajesh VoraSeveral inexpensive mock-ups were used to determine the optimum location both from the perspective of minimizing impact as well as framing potential views. Thus the driveway was also mocked-up and studied on site to avoid interrupting the natural ecology of the watershed, where it is important that water does not collect at the base of the tea bush.

A form-finished concrete tube forms the central circulation spine for the house, with interior spaces finished in richly textured natural wood. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe three main rooms are made to look like three separate cabins underneath the single roof and were therefore treated as boxes within an open plan and built from wood which contrasts the concrete and stone slab and metal canopy of the other primary components. The rich interior finishes and fixtures were designed by Niels Schoenfelder.Project gallerySee allShow less’The Great Sky’: Great Fen Visitor Center Competition Entry / Nicholas Hare ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectMontfullà House / Hidalgo HartmannSelected Projects Share Architects: RMA Architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily India “COPY” 2008 Photographs House in a Tea Garden / RMA Architects 2008 Year:  Houses Area:  8000 ft² Area:  8000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  CopyHouses•Coonoor, India Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeRMA ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCoonoorHousesIndiaPublished on May 02, 2013Cite: “House in a Tea Garden / RMA Architects” 02 May 2013.
