Wouldn’t it be a nice to live in a house designed to use all forms of energy (heat, water, light) in a optimal way? Ironically, nature’s free resources are the ones becoming scarce soon. Water is a precious commodity in Bangalore, not only during summer, but through out the year. Where else do you see tankers hog half the roads all day?
A few months back, we dropped by at the Zed Earth property on the outskirts of Bangalore, and all of us instantly fell in love with it. I happened to see the pictures again and wanted to share. Zed Earth is developed by BCIL who are well known for their eco-friendly homes. The model villa is so aesthetically designed that it is brimming with ideas to enhance storage and functionality. What I loved about the interiors was it was neither contemporary nor modern but adopted the best of both the worlds.
I will tell you the truth: what appealed the most in this house even before we entered were a dozen pots with healthy vegetables: brinjal was in the flowering stage and yet another had a bunch of okra. You don’t see them here..maybe these pictures were staged for the shoot.
The furniture in the entire house is to die for. I was told all the furniture you see here is designed in house using wood grown in their plantation. Swing in the living, skylight, flood of natural light, high ceiling, stone-paved courtyard, open kitchen, wall-less living dining, and simple furniture – all the elements I would want in a home some day :) Let’s not talk about the price. It’s quite steep.
