Vastu Compliant House in Bangalore by Khosla Associates
Architectural firm Khosla Associates has designed the Vastu House, a 13,000 square-foot residence located in Bangalore, India. This house is strictly Vastu compliant: the placement of spaces in the house are in sync with the plan of the Vastu Purusha Mandala (the ancient Indian science of orientation and placement). The house has two entrances. The private one faces a serene residential lane and the other looks on to a noisy main road. The house is located near the quiet lane, and the home – office is located near the main road. The home office acts as a sound barrier and while one is in the house nestled within an almost unbroken canopy of old trees one cannot perceive the cacophony of the main road.
