Brutalism Villa Shodhan

This villa was initially designed for Surottam Hutheesing, President of the Ahmedabad Mill Owners’ Association. In the end, the luxurious bachelor residence was actually built for Shyamubhai Shodhan on an entirely different plot. A parasol roof above the whole house shelters single- and double-height spaces. The raw concrete façade is structured by brise-soleil elements. The living rooms of the villa are located behind the deep façade of sun shades. There is a large terrace with benches and plants on the parasol roof, where the owner and his guests can enjoy the view over the garden. This project is part of the Architecture Reading Aid Ahmedabad (Ruby Press, 2015). © ARA (Fanelsa, Franke, Helten, Martenson, Wertgen)
