"THE VILLA DODIA' BY NUDES
NUDES architecture and design studio has constructed a ship-like house in Lonavala. Flanked by picturesque hillside terrain and a natural water catchment area, the design aims to prioritize open, outward facing elements over more enclosed, indoor spaces. According to the studio, the unique design is intended to ‘transport the users and sail through stunning landscapes’. Intended to function as a weekend getaway, the ‘villa Dodia’ is defined by its relationship to the exterior. A decidedly futuristic silhouette facilitates three separate terrace areas, two of which are oriented towards the nearby hills. the overall frame of the house is ‘pinched’ — its north facing façade travels upwards to a sharp point, while toward the south the architecture ‘zooms out’ to accommodate the impressive landscape. It is on this southern face that NUDES has constructed a rolling concrete terrace.
