A Gurugram farmhouse that feels like a luxury glamping…

At first glance, it’s easy to mistake the farmhouse for a boutique glamping property—”They wanted a resort-like feel,” affirms Kumar. To ensure the architecture of the farmhouse was as unobtrusive as possible, the team decided to construct the home entirely from shipping containers. “As per the client brief, we wanted to be mindful of resource consumption and the surrounding ecology. The choice of containers came to light as a solution to this challenge,” he explains.

A raised, knit bamboo mat roof covers the container pods and wooden deck area, adding a sense of tactility and rusticity to the structure. The bamboo columns are held together by coconut ropes, eliminating the use of nails.

The bathroom is finished in vitrified tiles and equipped with top-of-the-line fittings from Grohe, Duravit and Vitra. Visible from a niche in the wall is the outdoor shower that’s shielded by upcycled wooden planks for privacy.

The 2,200-square-foot Gurugram farmhouse is divided into two independent units, lovingly christened Champa and Chameli in memory of the family’s pet dogs. The former is more complex in structure and is created from an arrangement of five prefabricated containers each 20’x 8’. “The clients wanted a layout similar to a traditional home for the mother, with amenities such as a separate bedroom, living room and kitchen,” says Kumar. Floor-to-ceiling aluminium-and-glass windows invite plenty of natural light and allow for the indoors and outdoors to merge. A beautiful picket-fenced garden with small fruit trees ensures privacy at the entrance, and another deck at the back opens out into a landscaped garden with views of the Aravallis in the distance.
