Ant Studio designs a stunning home in the mountains
The Himalayas form the perfect backdrop for this charming residence
Known for bringing together art, nature, and technology, Ant Studio is come up with a gem for their latest project. The studio, led by founding partner and principal architect Monish Siripurapu, has created an abode where one can commence the day with a view of the first ray of sunlight hitting the pinnacle of the imposing Himalayas, while ending it with a sunset wherein the tangerine shade covers the frosted sierra.
This imagery is enough for anyone to fall in love with this space, but it doesn’t stop there. The interiors are just as charming, offering the perfect holiday setting. The home pays homage to its surroundings, respectfully responding to its contouring context. Located in Mukteshwar, the design spans a site area of 2 acres, organically levelled to be at par with the natural slope and terrain.
‘In the mountains’ is a residence that seeks to maintain Ant Studio’s core ideology of converging the built form with the natural demeanour of the space. In Siripurapu’s words, it is about “blurring the lines between the landscape and the built”.
