Manthena Farm House
Hyderabad, Telangana, India
This project started to take shape when our dear friend Naveen, landscape architect, from
Naveen Associates approached us to help a client to build a farm house on a 9 acre plot that faced a beautiful lake. The natural beauty and the gorgeous landscape fascinated us and we could not help but notice how fantastic the terrain was. This set in motion the creative process to build a farm house that not only celebrated the natural beauty around it but actually became a part of it.
We designed the farm to be set up on an elevated platform which ensured that the entire
view surrounding the farm could be visible from every angle. Intense landscaping was
featured around the architecture to give a view of either the lush greenery or the pool from
any of the rooms. In this project we used a very minimalistic design in the architecture and
interiors delicately highlighting the natural elements so that the contours, lines and angles
of the farm made the design of this ‘natural wonder’ complete.
We thank Anand and Kranthi Manthena for giving us complete freedom in designing their
dream farmhouse. We hope to get more creatively brilliant opportunities like this.
