THE MANGO HOUSE
Studio PKA designed The Mango House as a second home for a family based in Mumbai. Its location in the coastal town of Alibag provides separation from the city, which can be reached by ferry from a nearby port.
The property is carefully positioned on a site occupied by several old mango trees. Its layout slots in around the trees to ensure the network of roots is undisturbed, while being close enough to benefit from the much-needed shade they offer.
The branches of one of the mango trees overhangs a decked terrace on the first floor of the two-storey building, creating a shaded spot overlooking the garden and swimming pool.
A roof covered in red-clay Mangalore tiles slopes gently towards the front and rear of the house, concealing the pitch when viewed from these sides and creating the illusion of a more contemporary flat surface.
